Caleb Yauger joined the Erie News Now team in January 2023.

Yes, his last name is pronounced just like the former Pittsburgh Penguin’s legend Jaromír Jagr.

Speaking of Pittsburgh, Caleb grew up just outside of the city in Evans City, Pa., rooting for the Penguins, Pirates and Steelers.

Caleb graduated from Waynesburg University with a degree in Sports Broadcasting in December of 2022, learning under former Pirates broadcaster Lanny Frattare.

During his time as a Yellow Jacket, Caleb was heavily involved with campus TV station WCTV, participating as a talent for multiple shows and producing The Buzz, the station’s campus entertainment show.

He also announced for the Waynesburg University Sports Network (WUSN) and even hosted the 2022 Midterm Election Coverage Special.

Outside of work, Caleb is an avid music lover who thoroughly enjoys listening to and playing music, whether that’s on the guitar, piano, bass or ukulele.

He is extremely excited to be a part of the Erie community and make a positive impact.
