Listen to John Mellencamp’s song “Small Town
” and you’ll have the story of Mario Sacco, the newest addition to the WETM-18 Sports Team.
Mario grew up in Homer City, PA, a one stop light town about an hour east of Pittsburgh
As the weekend Sports Anchor, Mario is excited to be covering the Elmira Jackals, High School Sports and everything else the Twin Tiers has to offer.
Mario is a graduate of Syracuse University with a master’s in Broadcast Journalism. He also has a B.S. from Washington & Jefferson College in Political Science and Communications. During his time with the Presidents, Mario was the voice of Washington & Jefferson Athletics.
Ever since Mario was a little boy, he’s had a microphone in front of him. From announcing his sister’s basketball games to covering state baseball tournaments at the age of 15, Mario loved to cover sports. He looks forward to bringing that same passion to the Twin Tiers.
In his spare time Mario tries to keep busy by spending time with his family and friends. You’ll also spot him out on the golf course or around the ice rink.
