Don Postles... NewsCenter 2.

Buffalo Morning Radio As It Was in 1989
Taken From A Week-Long Series
Presented by NewsCenter 2's Don Postles

Text and video stills by
Steve Cichon

It was a NewsCenter 2 sweeps week special series... Don Postles visited with the most popular radio personalities. It opened with an explanation of how Buffalo's morning radio choices had just been radically changed when two former KB Staffers... Sandy Beach and Danny Neaverth.... found new homes along the Dial. This was graphically represented by two heads moving along an analog radio dial (see below.)

Sandy had left KB only a few years ago, and stopped at Hot 104 WNYS before heading to Majic 102 WMJQ. When KB went satellite, Danny went to WHTT after Sandy left. Snorton Norton and 97 Rock had also recently returned after an absence of a few years. All the moves help to make Bill Lacy and WBEN number one in Morning Drive. NewsCenter 2's Don Postles met with each of these jocks... Plus WPHD's team of Taylor & Moore. All told, the 5 part series is a nice snapshot of Buffalo Radio in 1989.
