Brian Taff is the co-anchor of Action News at 4pm, and contributes reports to all editions of Action News. He joined 6abc in October of 2009.

Prior to arriving at Action News, Brian served as anchor and editor of Capital Tonight, a nightly news and interview show seen all across upstate New York. In that role, Brian covered news of statewide significance, and conducted live, long-form interviews with every major politician and newsmaker in New York State, winning the Associated Press Award for “Best Interview” two consecutive years. Under Brian’s watch, the show he created as a once-weekly, half-hour program seen in Albany, expanded to a nightly, hour-long program syndicated live in 9 of New York’s 10 television markets – often not simply covering headlines, but generating them as well. As anchor of Capital Tonight, Brian broadcast live from all across the country, including from the National Political Conventions in 2004, and 2008.

Prior to hosting Capital Tonight, Brian served as weekend anchor and reporter at Capital News 9 in Albany, a 24 hour news channel owned and operated by Time Warner Cable. Through that experience, Brian anchored extended live coverage of several of the Capital Region’s most significant news events.

Brian began his career in broadcast journalism at WVII-TV in Bangor, Maine.

A graduate of Boston College, Brian is proud to be a part of the Action News family covering the day to day events of the Delaware Valley, where much of his family has long called home.

When not at work, Brian enjoys spending time on the water. When Mother Nature makes boating along the Jersey Shore impossible, he can be found skiing or simply enjoying life outdoors!
