Good Morning, First Niagara

A popular Buffalo, N.Y., anchorwoman is giving up her early-morning television gig for a role that should mean she can sleep past 3 a.m. now. Jodi Johnston, co-host of the top-ranked "Daybreak" morning show on local NBC affiliate WBRZ, is leaving the station this month to take over as director of corporate media relations and first vice president for Buffalo-based First Niagara Financial Group. Johnston also anchored the 5 p.m. newscast for her old station, which moved to the top spot in the local news ratings in the Buffalo market during her years there.
