WGRZ-TV in Buffalo has announced veteran reporter Pete Gallivan will return to his roots and his home at 2 On Your Side. Gallivan will 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," Gallivan said. "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 storytelling abilities to showcase the people and places that make Western New York unique."
Gallivan was a part of the 2 On Your Side team from 1996 until the spring of 2013, when he accepted a job in Gov. Cuomo's communications department. He returns to WGRZ-TV on July 15.
