Books: by Title: Irv! Buffalo's Anchorman: The Irv, Rick & Tom Story

The story of a TV anchorman so universally loved in Western New York that only one name is necessary... Irv.

From the 1950s through the 1990s, Irv Weinstein informed and entertained generations of Buffalonians with his unmistakable style of writing and delivering the news. Together with Rick Azar and Tom Jolls, Irv was a part of the longest running anchor team in history, and their story is the story of Buffalo over the last half century.

Written by veteran Buffalo broadcaster Steve Cichon, "Irv!" vividly chronicles an unforgettable chapter in Western New York history.

From the time long ago ... when our TV picture looked like it came from the bottom of a Coke bottle in fuzzy black and white, to today's electronically augmented color; One man in Buffalo television has been the leading presence. As Clint Buehlman once dominated Buffalo radio, so Irv through his intuition, aggressive style, his personality, has dominated the local news scene."
