Michael Loffredo joined the WWNY-TV team in April of 2017 as a producer / reporter. Before WWNY, Michael spent two years living in Charlotte, North Carolina working for CN2 News just across the state line in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Michael grew up an avid Buffalo Bills and Sabres fan. Throughout his childhood, he watched numerous television productions for his favorite teams. In watching these sporting events, the then 8-year old realized that he wanted to work toward the dream of being a broadcast journalist. Now that childhood dream has become a reality.
Michael attended St. Bonaventure University (Olean, NY) where he had the easy decision of becoming a Journalism and Mass Communication major; and he is a very proud Bonnie alum.
While at St. Bonaventure, Michael took advantage of applying for internships. This included acting as the public address announcer for Canisius High School and the St. Bonaventure Bonnies Division-1 baseball team’s home games.
During college, Michael worked in the public relations department for the Buffalo Bisons, AAA-affiliate for the MLB’s Toronto Blue Jays. He worked on everything from media guides, game notes, and game statistics on the scoreboard. He also had the opportunity to intern with the Buffalo Bills Broadcast Media Department. Throughout the internship, Michael produced videos for BuffaloBills.com, NFL network, and edited players and coaches press conferences. He says this was a dream come true to be up close working for his favorite team.
Michael graduated from St. Bonaventure University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communications.
When Michael is not working, he enjoys spending time watching and partaking in sporting activities, going to concerts, traveling, hanging out with family and friends, and following his beloved Buffalo Bills that went to four straight Super Bowls without winning a single one.
