About Us

Spectrum News is a 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week local news service viewed on cable channels 1, 9 and 200 in Buffalo and channels 14 or 8 elsewhere (check your cable channel listings for your area). Viewers can tune in anytime for breaking news, live Buffalo traffic reports, local Weather on the 1s (at :01, :11, :21, :31, :41 and :51 past each hour), and local sports and politics.

Based in our newsroom at 355 Chicago Street since our first newscast on March 25, 2009, our Buffalo staff reports around the clock from across Western New York: Buffalo-Niagara, the Genesee Valley and the Southern Tier. We also have staff in newsrooms in Jamestown and Batavia.

Tune in weeknights at 8 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. for Capital Tonight, our in-depth reporting and analysis of New York state politics including reports from and about Western New York.

Our local staff behind the scenes and in the field continues to provide you news important to you, our cable customer viewers in 200+ towns, villages and cities in an 8-county area that stretches from the Canadian border south to the Pennsylvania line and as far east as Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming and Allegany counties.
