WBBZ-TV Joins Effort To Open Bowling Houses Safely

WBBZ-TV, Your Hometown MeTV Station is home to WNY’s legacy bowling program, “Beat The Champ” every Saturday afternoon at 4pm ( with an encore Sunday night at 11p.m.).  The games are brought to you by the WNY Bowling Proprietors, hosted by Paul Peck, Hall of Fame Bowler Sue Nawojski, with Janelle Sabin at the Castilone Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram from Batavia, scoreboard.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic struck in March, bowling houses have been closed.


Now that several states are starting to open up various venues, including New York, WNY bowling proprietors are wondering why their lanes remain closed. Our WBBZ-TV hometown camera caught up with several notable bowling icons in our area, who all stated that they want to work with Governor Andrew Cuomo to get rolling, safely.

Bowlers are encouraged to send real bowling “pins” to the Governor in Albany as a show of solidarity to get back to the games, understanding that this all has to happen following CDC guidelines.  You can also contact the Office of the Governor simply by going online:

The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor of New York State
NYS State Capitol Building
Albany, NY 12224
