Thomas Weybrecht joined the WITN team in October 2019 as a news producer.
As of March 2021 he produces WITN News at Sunrise each weekday from 4:30 to 7:00 a.m.
Thomas hails from Wilmington, spending most of his life there after moving from Binghamton, New York at a young age. He loves everything Eastern Carolina has to offer: not too far from the beach, mountains or big city. He has family all over New York and the Carolinas, as well as in Florida and New Mexico.
He’s always wanted to be a journalist. He often stole his dad’s camera so he could use it for projects until being gifted one of his own.
Thomas graduated Summa Cum Laude from East Carolina University in May of 2019 with a degree in Communication concentrating in Journalism. During his time at ECU he held many jobs: a pedicab driver, a server at Pelican’s Snoballs, a “sample guy” at Sam’s Club and the Visual Arts Editor at the East Carolinian. Most recently, he’s worked at a local radio station as a producer and on-air personality.
He’s very happy to have found his home on the WITN team.
When he isn’t producing a newscast or working on a story you can find Thomas playing video games with friends or working on his tennis game. He’s got a long way to go.
