Before joining the 6abc Action News team, Nora worked as a general assignment reporter for New Jersey Network (PBS) in Trenton, New Jersey; WHTM-TV (ABC) in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and WWAC-TV in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Ms. Muchanic was born and raised in New Jersey and has spent most of her professional life covering the Garden State. During her almost 3 decades with Action News, she's followed 9 governors at the Statehouse and covered everything from presidents to popes, crime and corruption and the countless everyday stories of the people who call New Jersey home.
If there's a Nor'easter or a hurricane, Nora can be found standing in the middle of it. When Hurricane Sandy hit the Jersey shore in 2012, she turned in a solid month of reporting--covering nothing else--but the damage, destruction and cleanup after the devastating storm that affected hundreds of thousands of state residents.
Ms. Muchanic's assignments have taken her to Israel, Panama, California and several other states. She's covered major stories like 9/11, "Angel of Death" mass murderer Charles Cullen, the anthrax contamination at Trenton-area post offices, the murder of Megan Kanka by a sexual predator in her neighborhood and repeated flooding along the Delaware River. She's flown with the Air Force in an F-15 and test-driven a Lamborghini on a South Jersey racetrack, but her favorite stories are the ones where her feet are on the ground covering the issues and people of the Garden State.
Ms. Muchanic is a native of South Amboy, New Jersey and now lives in Hunterdon County. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from Ramapo College of New Jersey.
Even after 30 years in the business, she loves going to work each day and considers her career in news - and with Channel 6 - a gift.
