"60 Minutes Sports" piece on the Pegulas scheduled to air Oct. 6

This is what I am thinking:

  • Remember when CBS News anchor-reporter Jeff Glor was in town in late April to do interviews for a story that is primarily about Terry and Kim Pegula?

 

The report for “60 Minutes Sports,” the monthly program carried on pay-channel program Showtime, now has an air date.

It is tentatively scheduled to air at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6. If something big happens in sports to change the magazine’s plans, the story will have to wait another month.

I don’t think I have to tell you that Terry Pegula owns the Buffalo Sabres and is co-owner of the Buffalo Bills with his wife.

In April, Glor planned to follow the Pegulas at the National Hockey League draft in June and at the Bills training camp for the story. Glor, who originally is from Kenmore, was also seen at the Bills regular season opener against Indianapolis at the Ralph.

In addition to the Pegulas, the story also is expected to focus on new Bills coach Rex Ryan and the city of Buffalo.

Here’s the newest headline for Vanessa Williams, who sang the national anthem at the Bills game Sunday against New England: “From Newlywed to ‘The Good Wife.’”

Entertainment Weekly reports that Williams, who married Western New Yorker Jim Skrip here in July, is going to have a recurring role on “The Good Wife.” According to the magazine, Williams is playing a successful businesswoman who is considering backing Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) for president and then becomes a romantic interest for political operative Eli Gold (Alan Cumming).

The entertainment magazine quotes the show’s producers, Robert and Michelle King, as saying in a statement: “There are very few names you can put side by side that make you laugh. Alan Cumming and Vanessa Williams are at the top of the list.”

Like TWC, FiOS also is activating a Pope Channel.

According to a Verizon release, FiOS channels 601 (HD) and 61 (SD) will carry all the Papal public events live from Washington, D.C., New York City and Philadelphia starting with the Pope’s arrival in Washington, D.C. at 4 this afternoon and ending next Monday.

The two channels also will be available on the Verizon FiOS Mobile App. Replays will be available on the free Video on Demand folder, found on the “Menu” setting.
