Pete Gallivan Leaving WGRZ After 17 Years

After 17 years at WGRZ, Pete Gallivan is leaving the Buffalo NBC affiliate, the Buffalo News reports. The reporter and fill-in anchor has accepted a job in Governor Andrew Cuomo‘s communications department.

“I’m 47,” Gallivan told the News. “I wasn’t looking for an opportunity and they reached out to me. I thought if I was going to try something new, now was the time to do it.”

Gallivan informed the station of his departure on Tuesday. Because his new role is a potential conflict of interest, station management informed him he had to leave the station immediately.
