Kevin O'Connell will be able to join WIVB-TV sooner than expected. Channel 4 plans to introduce its once and future employee during its annual LaSalle Park concert on July 4.
However, O'Connell isn't expected to begin his duties as noon co-anchor until mid-July.
When his hiring was announced, Channel 4 officials said they hoped to have O'Connell here by the fall.
