The Buffalo Broadcast Pioneers Class of 1998

Tom Jolls
The Accu-Weather Word: Real Warm

Buffalo’s all-time favorite weatherman. 34 year vet of WKBW-TV’s "Weather Outside" and host of one of the city’s most memorable children’s programs, "The Commander Tom Show." Before Channel 7, he anchored news at WBEN-TV, wrote and produced radio dramas for WBEN-AM. Seated at the Channel 7 news desk with Rick Azar and Irv Weinstein, Jolls made up the longest running anchor team in the history of television (24 years - begining in 1965.)
