Blast from the Past: Danny Treanor on WFTV

Our Sponsors

We continue our Blast from the Past series with this newspaper advertisement from 1978.

It’s for weatherman Danny Treanor on WFTV. Back then, Danny did the weather on the noon, 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts. That was quite a long day!

Here’s what the text says: “Rain or shine, you’re certain to get the latest weather word from Danny Treanor, Channel 9 weatherman. Danny studies weather data gathered from satellite information and the most modern in weather wire equipment ¬†from the National Weather Service. He plots the facts and reports the prognosis weekdays at Noon, 6 & 11 PM.”
