    He was always a soothing voice whenever there was a fire.

    Honestly, he always made me feel better no matter what was going on. RIP again to Mr. Weinstein. Glad I remember those years of "Topping Eyewitness News...."
    I lost a bet with Pink and all I got was this dumb avatar that I've had awhile anyway.

    I miss Irv & Rik Azar & Tom Jolls.

    It's what I first knew as the 6 o'clock news.

    I loved that guy! Except for the night Team USA beat Russia in the 1980 Olympics. ABC had the game on tape delay. While it was tied in the 3rd, ABC went to commercial. Right before going back to the game, Eyewitness News had thew 10 second live promo- Irv comes out "TEAM USA upsets Russia- Film at 11"


    DOH!!!!
