After about fours years away from the microphone, a familiar voice will be returning to the local airwaves at WECK-AM/FM.

Former WBEN-AM News Director Steve Cichon will be joining the “WECK Coffee Club” Morning Show starting on Monday, February 26 as the station’s News Director and morning news anchor. He fills the position after John Zach’s departure from the station earlier this month and will work alongside co-hosts Tom Donahue and Gail Ann Huber.

Cichon worked many roles at WBEN-AM including airborne traffic reporter, news anchor, reporter, and News Director before leaving in 2013. During his 20 year stretch in the broadcasting business, he also worked for WIVB-TV and the now defunct Empire Sports Network. Since his time away from WBEN-AM, Cichon launched his own company, Buffalo Stories, LLC, taught at Medaille College, worked at WNED/WBFO, and wrote for the Buffalo News for three years. Most recently, Cichon ran for the position of Erie County Clerk.

Being steeped in broadcasting history, Cichon is a Past President of Buffalo Broadcasters Association and was part of the board for over a decade.

“Being the voice people depend upon for the top local news stories of the day is a big responsibility – and I’m looking forward to telling those stories. I’m also looking forward to telling unique Buffalo stories our listeners won’t get anywhere else,” said Cichon in a press release.

Owner and President Buddy Shula said, “We’re very fortunate to have a well-known and respected journalist like Steve at WECK.”
