Channel 7, the official station of the Buffalo Bills, has hired Hannah Buehler away from the National Football League team.
General Manager Mike Nurse confirmed that Buehler will be a multi-media journalist for the ABC affiliate after working for the Bills for two years. She handled community outreach and was heavly involved in social media for the team.
A 2011 graduate of Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, Buehler is a Western New York native and former Channel 7 intern. She begins her new job on Jan.13.
While working for the NFL team, she has been on Channel 7 in the morning doing features about the Bills in the community.
Speaking of the Bills, their 34-20 season-ending loss to the New England Patriots Sunday had a 29.0 rating on Channel 4, the local CBS affiliate. It didn't approach the ratings for games earlier in the season, but the game still was the highest-rated program of the week by far in WNY.
