About Niagara Views
Charlie Specht started at The News as a college intern, joining the staff full time after his graduation from St. Bonaventure. A South Buffalo native, he also lived in Marilla and is in his second year covering Niagara Falls City Hall.
Bruce Andriatch, a proud Town of Tonawanda native and a graduate of St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute and Canisius College, is the suburban editor at The News. He has been writing a weekly column since 2006. Two days after his first column appeared, the October Storm occurred, plunging much of the region into darkness and despair. Read into that what you will.
