Kilgore leaves sports anchor desk at WGRZ

Having been there for more than my life, this is huge to me.

So many iconic Buffalo broadcasters that we Southern Ontario residents grew up with - and Ed is right up there.
Hard to believe the man's been there 38 years!

Does anyone remember him before he got his hairpiece? I miss Buffalo TV.

Wow, what a long run. I remember him from when I was kid although I don't think I have seen him on tv for about 30 or 35 years.

And that's Rich Kellman on the right!

It's unreal how the Buffalo affiliate stations, primarily the newscasts and the commercials, have influenced people growing up in southern Ontario. Everyone knows the call letters: WKBW, WGRZ, WIVB, and WUTV. Popular personalities such as Irv Weinstein, Mylous Hairston, Kevin O'Connell, plus syndicated (and network) shows, and famous commercial catchphrases and jingles such as "Huuuuuge" and "Celino and Barnes" are ingrained in our minds.

Cheektowaga, Tonawanda, Kenmore... everyone's heard of these suburbs of Buffalo! The power of media! Amazing.

You always know the Canadians at the Bills games. They are the ones singing the Celino and Barnes jingle when the ad comes up over the PA.
