Eamon O'Meara is a reporter in the New River Valley Bureau. Originally from the East Coast, he grew up in a small town on the South Shore of Massachusetts.
After graduating from Villanova University he attended the Connecticut School of Broadcasting to sharpen his journalism skills. From there he joined WPRI in Providence, Rhode Island, as a sports intern. After two years doing video and internet work for a website, Eamon joined KSNB-TV in Central Nebraska where he became the weekend anchor and bureau chief.
But the pull back to the East Coast was strong, so he joined WDBJ7 in January 2016.
When not at work, Eamon enjoys watching any kind of sporting event, including Virginia Tech, or getting out in the community to get to know the area he lives in.
