WIVB Adds Sports Reporter

By Kevin Eck 

Shannon Shepherd is joining Buffalo, N.Y., CBS affiliate WIVB as a sports reporter.

Shepherd comes from WSYR in Syracuse, N.Y., where she’s worked for two years.

The Buffalo News reports WIVB “hasn’t had a third member of the sports team in several years but adding one became a goal of News Director Scott Levy.”

Shepherd interned at WIVB before she worked at WSAW in Wausau, Wisc. as a weekend sports anchor.
