WCKT-TV Channel 7's Wayne Chandler with Toby the Robot reading the Sunday funnies in the Miami Herald

Miami, Florida


Thank you to Alvin Lederer for contributing this image of Wayne Chandler with Toby the Robot reading the Sunday funnies in the Miami Herald. Wayne Chandler worked at WCKT-TV, (now WSVN-TV) from 1969-1984. During his time as a weatherman at the station, Mr. Chandler also appeared on a popular children's show Sunday Funnies with Charlie Folds, who appeared as his sidekick Toby the Robot.

Charlie Folds wore the robot outfit, an inverted plastic garbage can (you can see the handle below his right arm).

I remember the 6 o'clock news on channel 7 weekdays, with Wayne Farris and Richard Whitcomb. Morris McLemore did the sports. Of course Ralph Renick and (Bob) Weaver the Weatherman were their competitors on WTVJ channel 4 back then.
