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