May 20, 1955: What's airing tonight on Channel 2?

Sixty years ago this week, WGR-TV had only been on the air for about a year, but several well-known personalities from WGR Radio were becoming well-known on Channel 2 as well.

Newsmen Roy Kerns and Pat Fagan as well as sportscasters Roger Baker and Bill Mazer were in the spotlight on nightly news and sports programs, and Ollie Howard brought his outdoors show from radio to TV as well.

From NBC, Buffalo saw “This Is Your Life” on Channel 2, with former WBEN announcer Ralph Edwards.  The night wrapped up with "The Tonight Show" in its original form with Steve Allen.
