Nick Papantonis is the investigative and weeknight reporter for WPDE in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He joined the team in June 2017.
During his time in the Palmetto State, Nick has focused his attention on government accountability. He routinely breaks stories about public safety, political misconduct, and decisions made outside of the public view.
Nick also works on longer form stories for the station, planning and producing heartfelt accounts of the impact of the opioid crisis, reports commemorating major events, and a 10-minute investigation into the state school system.
Nick began his journey in broadcasting during his freshman year at Syracuse University's CitrusTV. He launched his professional career two years later at WBNG in Binghamton, NY as an intern in September 2015, before being promoted to reporter a few weeks later. He covered stories big and small, from winter storms to April the Giraffe.
