WGRZ, Channel 2 Chief Photojournalist Andy DeSantis has posted on his Facebook page that retired Channel 2 photographer Nick Burgio has died. He was 90.
Burgio joined Channel 2 when the station signed on for the first time in 1954. He retired in 1991 but continued working part time for a while.
Burgio was “my mentor, second father and friend,” DeSantis wrote. “Those of us who worked with Nick loved him and appreciated his guidance and friendship.”
