A longtime local newspaper and television contributor whose career brought him to Buffalo in 1968 has submitted his final work and moved downstate. His farewell article is being released today.
WBFO's Michael Mroziak recently chatted with retiring longtime local journalist Doug Smith, whose final column runs in the April 7, 2016 edition of the Buffalo Rocket community newspaper. Smith, who coincidentally worked under Mroziak for two years at the Niagara Gazette, has moved with his wife to Cortland to be closer to family. Smith's work with various Buffalo media outlets began in 1968.
