On March 12th, FTVLive reported that after 17 years WGRZ (Buffalo) Anchor/Reporter Pete Gallivan was leaving the Gannett station and getting out of TV News.
Gallivan left the station to work in the communications department in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Buffalo office.
Being the mouthpiece for the Governor.... kind of sounded like a crappy job to us.
And obviously after a few months on the job, Gallivan agreed.
WGRZ has announced that Gallivan is returning to the station. He return as a news and sports reporter/anchor, covering the issues and people of Western New York, as well as providing in-depth coverage and analysis of the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills.
"Sports and broadcast journalism have always been a part of me," said Gallivan. "I couldn't be happier to return to 2 On Your Side, a place that I called home for 17 years. There is nothing more rewarding than to tell the stories in your hometown of your family, friends, and neighbors."
"We are thrilled to have Pete back in the family," said News Director Jeff Woodard. "His unique skill set is the perfect fit for our information center going forward. He will be part of the biggest sports department in Buffalo television, while also using his incredible story-telling abilities to showcase the people and places that make Western New York unique."
