Dec. 19, 1979: How Buffalo's radio and TV stations handle the snow

With a few names changed, this same piece might be written today.

One name that wouldn’t need changing: John Zach. Thirty-five years ago, he was the morning newsman at WKBW Radio with Danny Neaverth. Today, he’s the morning news man at WBEN.

Odds are, he still has those same sleeping bags.

"Area radio, TV stations don’t get stuck in the snow"

" 'We have a policy for our people and that is, don't wait to be called. If the snow hits the fan, come on in. We can use all the troops we can get,' reports WBEN (930) Radio news diredctor Jim McLaughlin."
