Bob Koshinski, vice president and general manager of WBBZ-TV, has announced the special telecast of â€œGiants of Buffalo: Radioâ€ will air again Thursday, November 28th at 9p.m. as a Thanksgiving special.
The event, presented by the Buffalo Broadcasters Association in conjunction with the Buffalo History Museum, featured Sandy Beach, Shane Gibson, Danny Neaverth, Joey Reynolds, and Stan Roberts. These Buffalo Hall of Fame legends gathered at the Buffalo History Museum March 15th of this year, and originally aired on WBBZ-TV this past spring.
John Di Sciullo, director of promotion and production for WBBZ-TV was the MC. The personalities share incredible stories about their careers in broadcasting, fans, family, and the industry.
â€œThese men influenced my choice to go into broadcasting and make it my career. I was proud to be a part of this presentation,” Koshinski said.
Phil Arno, owner of WBBZ-TV, said, â€œThese men made major contributions to the medium of radio, and also television, not only in Buffalo but across the country. I am proud our station was a partner in this historic gathering of broadcasters.â€
â€œThe Buffalo History Museumâ€™s mission is to present a wide array of programs, exhibits, tours, and outdoor events that tell the stories of both ordinary and extraordinary people of Western New York. Our â€œGiants of Buffaloâ€™ program, with the strong support of WBBZ-TV, assists us in presenting the latter,â€ said Constance Caldwell from the Buffalo History Museum.
The â€œGiants of Buffalo: Radioâ€ was produced by Buffalo Broadcasters Association President Dave Gillen and Vice President Heidi Raphael, in association with Melissa Brown, executive director of the Buffalo History Museum, located at One Museum Court in Buffalo.
â€œThe Buffalo Broadcasters are dedicated to preserving and promoting WNY’s rich local broadcasting history, saluting and encouraging quality broadcasting today and in the future, and most importantly to promote quality broadcasting,â€ Gillen said.
