Jim has been a professional Multi-Media Journalist in Buffalo, NY since 2005. While attending college, he got his feet wet at the now defunct WB49 “News at 10” as a photojournalist and production assistant.
After receiving an Associates Degree in Communication and Media Arts from Erie Community College in 2007, he began a two and half year stint at Channel 7 “Eyewitness News.” There, he had the honor to cover the big stories that mattered to Western New York and the Country. He was one of the first cameras on the scene of the tragic crash of Continental Flight 3407 in Clarence Center and he has traveled to Albany and Washington D.C. for the inaugurations of Governor David Paterson and the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Obama.
During his tenure at WKBW-TV, Jim won several awards, including the top Spot News Award from the New York State Broadcasters Association and honors from the Associated Press for Best Continuing Coverage for his teamwork along side the Eyewitness News Team during a weekend of wild weather.
In September 2009, Jim joined WGRZ-TV’s “Western New York’s Information Center” as a Multi-Media Journalist. He shoots breaking news overnight and from time to time, reports on-air. You can see his work everyday on “Channel 2 News Daybreak.”
