A familiar face was back on the television yesterday morning as a long-time TV news anchor started at his new station.

Just a couple of months after he posted a tearful goodbye to his viewers at Spectrum, Scott Patterson was back on television yesterday morning at his new station.

Patterson has joined the morning show on WIVB, Channel 4 in Buffalo.


Patterson was let go from Spectrum News back in September after the company decided to do away with local newscasts in Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse in favor of a state-wide news show which is hosted by anchors in Albany.

Along with Patterson, the Wake Up show is co-hosted by Ali Touhey and meteorologist Mike Chejka.

Horvatits hasn't issued an update on where he is heading after his contract with WIVB expires.
