Pete Weber, a longtime Buffalo sportscaster and play-by-play announcer, is continuing his recovery from a successful heart procedure.
Weber, who has been the voice of the NHL’s Nashville Predators for the past 15 years, was in Minnesota, preparing to call Thursday night’s Predators game against the Wild. He suffered a heart attack Thursday morning. Weber was released from a St. Paul hospital Friday and was expected to return to his Nashville home to continue his recovery.
Weber was in good spirits Thursday afternoon when he tweeted “Thanks to all for your wishes! Resting comfortably in St Paul, close to Tom Reid’s bar!”
Weber called Buffalo Bisons baseball games on the radio from 1983 through 1995. From 1995 to 1997, he was the radio play-by-play announcer for the Buffalo Sabres. Weber also worked at WGR, where he was part of the station’s Buffalo Bills broadcasts during the Super Bowl years.
Weber came to Buffalo in the late 1970s as a sports anchor for the old WEBR, Newsradio 970.
