Atlantic was huge - they sponsored the Red Sox for decades.

A few snippets on the web





Scanning Google I have seen obits of old Atlantic weathermen in New Haven
and Plattsburgh.

Fred B Cole as I mentioned had the role in Boston and it was only for the
early newscast at 6 ( Same in Manchester with Gus)

Cole was fired by WHDH radio in 1967 with no warning and was replaced by
Jim Runyon. Cole surfaced a couple of times first when WNTN Newton went on
the air and the Globe archives mention he was hired in 1977 by WHET. I
think WHET was the former WCRB AM 1330.
