Wyman funeral to be broadcast on television and internet

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) – The Oneida County Sheriff’s Department has said that the Wyman family invites the community to the funeral of fallen Deputy Kurt Wyman.

Due to the strong outpouring of support from across the county, and possible limited space at the Utica Memorial Auditorium, NEWSChannel 2 will broadcast the funeral in its entirety on WKTV on television and WKTV.com online.

Starting around 11:00 a.m. on Monday, NEWSChannel 2 plans to begin broadcasting the funeral, as it begins at the Utica Memorial Auditorium. The broadcast will include the arrivals of local dignitaries and law enforcement agencies, funeral services inside the Aud and the beginning of the expected procession to follow outside on Oriskany Street.

Officials have met with members of the media to be sure that the broadcast and necessary equipment will not interfere with specific wishes of the Wyman family and Oneida County Sheriff’s Department.
