Western New York's broadcasting is silenced tonight. Legendary (WKBW) 7 Eyewitness News Sports Director/Anchor Rick Azar has died at the age of 91. Azar became a household name working alongside the late great Irv Weinstein, and Meteorologist tom Jolls (Commander Tom). Azar worked at WKBW from when the station signed on in November of 1958 to his retirement in 1989.

 

Thoughts, prayers and condolences are with the Azar family and to his extended family at 7 Eyewitness News.

RIP Rick, Godspeed... and say hello to Irv from all of us here.

Sad news here in Richmond. Longtime WWBT anchor Andrea McDaniel passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer last week. She anchored NBC12 News Today and NBC12 News at Noon from 1985 to 2006. After that, she continued to appear on-air and represent the station on several community projects and then later hosted the station's RVA Today segments (RVA is Richmond's nickname) until last year.
