Morning Anchor Victoria Hong Leaving WIVB

Victoria Hong, the morning and noon anchor at WIVB, is leaving the Buffalo CBS-affiliate.

“I’m very appreciative of my time at Channel 4, they took me at a serious time in my life,” Hong told Buffalo media blogger Alan Pergament. “I’m getting older and it’s time for a new adventure.”

Hong originally joined WIVB in 1993, but left three years later. She returned to WIVB in 2003 after stints at WPHL in Philadelphia and WRGZ in Buffalo. According to Pergament, she plans to leave television altogether.

In 2009, WIVB expanded its morning newscast with Arena and Hong from two hours to four, with the program switching from WIVB to WNLO at 7 a.m. to make way for the “The Early Show.”

“It’s definitely not your average morning news show,” Arena told The Buffalo News recently, saying that the new show would focus on lifestyle topics such as parenting, health, beauty, and fitness. Read more
