In an interview with Linda Pellegrino on Tuesday’s edition of AM Buffalo, Jon Summers announced that he is retiring after nearly 59 years in the broadcasting business. Summers was dubbed AM Buffalo’s “Man Around Town” and did local segments at senior centers, festivals, home/garden shows, and much more.
Summers spent 27 years as co-host of the program with Linda Pellegrino and has also been the voice of WKBW-TV by recording commercials that would air throughout the day on the station. From his interview, he stated that there hasn’t been a single week since 1974 that his voice hasn’t appeared on the station in some way.
He came to Buffalo after working in Washington D.C. to WKBW-AM in 1974 and worked with other local stations including WBEN-AM/FM, WJYE-FM, and WECK-AM.
