WKBW-TV 7 Eyewitness News has hired Ali Touhey, a Multi-Media Journalist with a passion for telling stories that make a difference, effective January 4th.
Ms. Touhey is presently Chief of Staff for NYS Assemblyman Sean Hanna. She previously worked at WROC-TV, Rochester, NY and WICZ-FOX 40 in Binghamton, NY as a reporter and anchor.
“I was honored to work with Assemblyman Hanna, but I realized I miss telling the stories that make a difference and wanted to get back into journalismâ€ said Touhey, â€œIâ€™m excited to join the 7 Eyewitness News team and make Western New York my home.”
â€œWith the addition of Ali to 7 Eyewitness News we are strengthening our reporting staff to better serve our viewers,â€ said Michael Nurse, vice president and general manager for WKBW-TV. â€œOver the past year and a half we have made several key hires to ensure our comprehensive coverage of the daily news product and Aliâ€™s experience adds to our solid team of reporters, while her political background will be very helpful in the upcoming political yearâ€.
Ali heads to Buffalo with two loyal Buffalo Bills fans, her husband, Jeff and their dog, Oscar.
