Gib Shanley wore many hats in Cleveland; voice of the Browns, sports director at WEWS and in this case from 1972, pitchman for the Cleveland Press.

Gib was known for his flashy attire and this spot is no different - nice coat Gib.

Playing the role of Press carrier is Mike Ritchie, the son of WEWS news director Garry Ritchie.

Rarely does a WEWS Video Vault contain any commercial spots because of concerns regarding ownership or copyright. There's no problem with a Cleveland Press 30-second spot in our video player. It was done in our studios and, at the time, both WEWS and The Cleveland Press were owned by Scripps.
