Loraine O'Donnell has considered Buffalo home for the past 20 years and feels like she grew up here!
Never at a loss for words, she hosts GOOD MORNING BUFFALO on WECK 1230am from 5:30-9 on weekdays. When not at work you can find her on various stages all over western New York as an award winning Singer, Actress, Improv and performer.
With degrees in Theatre and Journalism she started her theatre career in New York working Off-Broadway and the Cabaret circuit. Her journalism career in TV started here at channel 2 hosting a segment on ARTVOICE ON 2 later to join Channel 7 to co-host AM & PM BUFFALO with Linda Pellegrino and as Luna on OFF-BEAT CINEMA. She also co-hosted the public Affairs program ALL THAT MATTERS with Pete Anderson on TWC.
With a radio resume too long to mention in its entirety, she's had gigs at WBUF, WYRK, 97 ROCK here in Buffalo and in Boulder and Denver, Colorado at news-radio KBVI and 103.3 THE FOX Classic rock.
An appearance on THE JENNY JONES SHOW as a Jon-Benet Ramsey expert in 1995 introduced her to talk show television where she promptly showered afterwards.
Loraine lives in Allentown with her 11 year old son Declan, who by the way knows EVERYTHING...just ask him.
