This week, it’s the “Battle of the Sexes” from Transit Lanes as the top men and women league bowlers compete for fun in this special show.

If you are in the Dunkirk / Fredonia area- make sure you visit our TV taping Sunday March 26th at Lucky Lanes! Paul Peck, Sue Nawojski, and Janelle Sabin will be there taping future episodes!
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 March 26th from Lucky Lanes.
“Beat The Champ” is produced by WBBZ-TV in cooperation with the WNY Bowling Proprietors. Information can also be found at the station website, www.wbbz.tv.
