If you grew up in Buffalo you most likely grew up with Irv Weinstein. Irv, along with Tom Joles and Rick Azar, helped to form the longest running anchor team in history. During their reign, the dynamic TV news personalities were revered as media icons while being ingratiated into the homes of thousands of WNY families.
Author Steve Cichon (reporter for WBEN) has captured the goings on of the Eyewitness News team with 148 pages of behind the scenes accounts that tell the real story of the trio and the times (50s-90s). “These three guys were a big part of my life, just like plenty of other Western New Yorkers,” says Cichon. “But, I was also inspired to a life in a newsroom by the way Irv, Rick, and Tom imparted knowledge and humanity with every newscast.”
