Buffalo Anchor Leaving After May Sweeps

By Kevin Eck 

WGRZ anchor Scott Levin says he’s leaving broadcasting at the end of May sweeps.

He’s anchored the evening shift at the TEGNA-owned Buffalo NBC affiliate since 1998. The station credits him with playing “a key role in helping turn things around…taking the perennial #3 news station in the market to its current #1 ranking.”

Levin is going to work in management for a local automotive group. He started his broadcast career at KNDO in Yakima, Washington. He then went to work for WWBT in Richmond, Virginia before taking the job at WGRZ.

“To all of my co-workers, reporters, producers, photographers, editors, engineers and management, again I say thank you!” said Levin. “You are an incredibly talented group of people whom I was honored to work with. You made my job much easier and are the real reason for the station’s success. Finally, a big thank you to my partner Maryalice Demler, the consummate professional who always made me look better than I really was!”
