BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Former national news anchor Katie Couric made local headlines when she visited the Queen City on a quest to document growth and the economic boom in Buffalo.
Couric toured Canalside, stories and more, gaining insight and ideas for the piece she would anchor for Yahoo! News. To Couric, the piece was a chance to spotlight a location that has in the past gotten a bad rap.
“It’s really exciting to see what’s going on here, and I’m really eager to share it with the rest of the country, because I think that Buffalo could be used in many ways as a model for other cities, dealing with some challenges.
The piece went live on Friday, and featured local sports, business and more. View the piece in our video player below, or click here if on the News 4 app.
