Mourning the Loss of a Former NewsChannel 7 Announcer

We mourn the loss of a member of the Newschannel Seven family.

Orville "Buck" Leverton died Thursday (11/10/05). He started as an announcer on the radio station when we owned it back in the early 60s, then went on to host our noon newscast on the TV side before retiring in 1978.

Those who knew him say Buck was soft spoken in real life, but could ad-lib with the best of them on the air. He was 95.
