Chuck Healy hosts "Beat The Champ"


November 16, 1959, WBEN-TV's Chuck Healy hosts the long running "Beat the Champ" at the Thruway Lanes in Cheektowaga. Healy was one of the most versatile craftsmen ever to ply his trade in Buffalo broadcasting. In an astonishingly eclectic career at Channel 4, he anchored sports, was Buffalo's most popular news anchor, hosted bowling shows, and was the announcer for the flamboyant wrestling telecasts from Memorial Auditorium. After retiring from Channel 4, Healy hosted "Over 50" for 13 years on WNED-TV. He died in 1994 and was inducted into the Western New York Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 1998.
