BUFFALO, NY-- Channel 2 News viewers will soon see a very familiar face at 5p, 6p and 11p as Scott Levin returns to WGRZ-TV.

Levin left the station after the 2017 May “sweeps” for a job in the auto industry, but soon had a change of heart and realized Channel 2 was home for him.

“After the recent triple tornado event in the southtowns, I quickly realized that my heart for news, especially breaking news and reporting the stories of Western New Yorkers was still pumping hard, very hard, and I knew the WGRZ newsroom was where I really needed to be,” Levin said. “As much as we all want to plan our lives, God has a way of surprising you with unexpected twists and turns, and His plan is always the perfect plan. I'm looking forward to joining my colleagues once again at WGRZ and the single best news team in WNY!”

“We are thrilled to have Scott returning to his journalistic passions at 2 On Your Side,” said WGRZ President & General Manager Jim Toellner. “His love of WNY along with his acute and discerning perspective on the stories we tell made him an enduring viewer favorite.”

Scott will be back on the air in early September.

We'll be watching 😊📺 👍
