On November 30 at The Lambs Club in New York City, 11 individuals were inducted at the New York Chapter Gold and Silver Circle Ceremony from the New York Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. WGRZ-TV’s Chief Photographer Andy DeSantis was honored with the Silver Circle Award, recognizing his commitment and contributions to the television industry for a quarter century or more.

The Buffalo Broadcasters Association’s Chairman Emeritus Dave Gillen left the sales team at WGRZ-TV in early September and made the switch to Townsquare Media. His new job includes being a part of the sales team at Townsquare and also is on-air weeknights from 7 p.m. to midnight on WMSX-FM (Mix 96). Gillen had been working weekend shifts since 2014 at the station, since the format switched.

WEDG-FM (103.3 The Edge) has made two personnel moves in the past month.

Evan James took over the 7 to 10 p.m. slot on weekday evenings following the departure of Josh Potter earlier this year. James is also the station’s imaging director as a part of his full-time duties, in addition to his on-air role. James previously was covering weekend duties and began with Cumulus as an intern. He attended St. Francis High School and Hilbert College.

In another hire, Zaque Evans has joined the team at 103.3 The Edge after spending nearly 4 years at Entercom in a variety of roles including Promotions Manager and as an On-Air Personality with Alternative Buffalo. He will be covering weekend and fill-in duties at the new station while he continues pursuing a graduate degree from the University at Buffalo.

In an announcement on Thursday from CBS News President David Rhodes, Western New York native Jeff Glor will become the next anchor of the CBS Evening News starting in November. The Kenmore East graduate and Tonawanda native has been working at CBS News since 2007.

“Jeff is a thoughtful, probing journalist with the versatility to anchor in any circumstance — from daily reporting to the most significant events of our time,” Rhodes said in the announcement.
