The Happiest Place on Earth is a Newsroom in Buffalo


Disney World makes the claim as the happiest place on earth, but Today that place is in a newsroom in Buffalo, NY.

As FTVLive told you was going to happen, E.W. Scripps announced this morning that it has agreed to buy WKBW in Buffalo.

The station had been own and run into the ground by Granite Broadcasting and everyone inside the newsroom at WKBW is on cloud nine with the news that Granite will no longer be the station's owner. 

"They (Scripps) are extremely excited to be purchasing this station," said WKBW GM Mike Nurse. "The Buffalo market fits perfectly with their strategy of targeting turnaround markets, especially along the Great Lakes."

"I don't anticipate many changes," said Nurse. 


FTVLive thinks the station can expect many changes and most of them to be positive. The station will finally be owned once again by a company that understand you need good people and to spend some money to cover the news.

Granite didn't do either one of those things. 

Congrats to the few decent people still left at WKBW and for once the future finally looks good for Eyewitness News.
