Nick Mendola, former WGR-500 radio personality and a friend to Buffalo Sports Daily, is making his debut this evening on 1230 WECK radio. His show is titled “The Late Nick Mendola”.
It airs from 7-10pm this evening and scheduled guests include Buffalo-born national media personality Luke Russert and University at Buffalo football lineman Peter Bittner among others.
Mendola left WGR in late April after four years with the station. He takes over as an evening sports talk host at WECK on nights that the New York Yankees aren’t playing. One of the things that most intrigued Mendola about switching positions is the University at Buffalo graduate will be part of WECK broadcasts of UB football and UB women’s basketball.
“It is really nice to be believed in by a station that not only has embraced my alma mater but independently has embraced the city.” Mendola told the Buffalo News last week.
We urge everyone to tune in tonight for Mendola’s on-air debut. I’ve spoken to him several times over the past week and he’s genuinely excited for the opportunity. He has a great passion for Buffalo and its sports teams and it’ll reflect in what he brings to the airwaves.
