Sam joined the WENY News Team in August 2021.  

Sam graduated from Ithaca College’s Roy H. Park School of Communications in May of 2021 with a B.S. in Sports Media. Growing up in New York City, Sam found a passion for sports as an athlete, competing in multiple sports throughout high school and college. Watching NBA Highlights in the morning before school influenced Sam to pursue a career in the television broadcasting industry.  

During his time at IC, Sam worked many roles on-air and behind the scenes. In addition to anchoring sports on Ithaca College Television, Sam produced an award-winning 3-part documentary series, Pride and Poise: Journey to the Meadowlands, that gave an inside look into the 2019 Ithaca College Football season. He was also a part of Ithaca College’s Cross Country and Track & Field teams, where he raced 3k, 5k, 8k, and 10k races.  

You can typically watch Sam reporting on News and Sports in the Twin Tiers on WENY News at 5:30 & 6, and fill in as an anchor on WENY News at Noon. During his free time, Sam enjoys watching a good movie, going on long hikes, and spending time with friends and family.
