    Grew up with Uncle Ted– got me into magic & enjoyed his late night off-the-wall humor. Definitely an attribute to our area and its early tv history. It’s an honor to have seen him while growing up. It’s now an honor to have him as an inductee into the Horror Host Hall of Fame. Now everyone everywhere can learn of his history.Congrats to his family!

    too bad these clips are from WVIA. And it’s unfortunate that WNEP doesn’t have any ghoul school shows remaining in it’s archives. Still, congrats to Uncle Ted and his family!

    Yes, jhosk, O’Reilly did write some nasty stuff about my father. At the very LEAST, it is slander. Thank you for your kind comments.

      Didn`t Bill O`Reilly write disparagingly of Uncle Ted in one of his first books? {The meglomaniac was an employee of WNEP at a time when Uncle Ted was also.} That was unpardonable. Is just one more reason I have no respect for O`Reilly. Uncle Ted deserved praise, not censor.
