Brianne Roesser is a multimedia journalist with the Spectrum News 1 team in Buffalo.

An Erie, PA native, Brianne has always felt at home in Buffalo, which is like one big family. That strong communal sense serves as an inspiration in every one of her stories. “We celebrate together, hurt together and grow together,” she says.

Before coming to Buffalo, Brianne spent two years with Spectrum News in North Carolina. Brianne ​covered major weather events such as Hurricane Matthew, Florence and Dorian. Covering those types of stories taught her about the true resilience of the human spirit. Now she dedicates much of her storytelling to disability rights and advocacy.

A lover of live music and animals, Brianne currently resides in Buffalo with her husband Ben, a Buffalo native, and their two dogs, Raleigh and Piper, who she considers two of the funniest creatures on the planet.
