Chris Musial, President and General Manager of WBBZ-TV, is proud to announce that “Beat The Champ,” will roll from the Kerns Avenue Bowling Center at 163 Kerns Avenue in Buffalo, Saturday 25th at 4p.m. (with an encore the following Sunday at 11p.m.).
The weekly bowling competition presents the Kerns Avenue Bowling Center Ladies Championship Challenge! Dawud Sanders, a member the National Bowling Association, who organizes some of the women bowlers featured in this week’s competition, joins Paul Peck and Sue Nawjoski to talk about the ladies and the bowling organization.
Buffalo bowlers competing include Tracy Tillotson and Debbie Artis-Flood; Fran Adams and Connie McMillan; plus Marlene Bradley and Beverly Edwards.
The program originally aired for decades on Channel 4 with legendary hosts Chuck Healy and Van Miller. While it has not been seen for close to twenty years, the competition remains one of the longest running bowling programs on television.
Now, “Beat The Champ” is co-hosted by veteran sportscaster Paul Peck and Greater Buffalo USBC Association Hall of Fame bowler Sue Nawojski. Peck worked for decades at “News 4” before becoming a financial advisor and play-by-play broadcaster for the UB Bulls football team. Janelle Sabin keeps the numbers on the Castilone Jeep, Chrysler, Plymouth Scoreboard.
The next tapings of the program are scheduled for Sunday February 26th from Transit Lanes, 7850 Transit Road in Williamsville starting at 10a.m.
