ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Bills are giving fans a reason to stay in their seats at halftime on Sunday.
That’s when the team will honor longtime radio play-by-play announcer Van Miller by adding his name to the Wall of Fame at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
Miller, a Dunkirk native, took Bills fans through 37 seasons of highs and lows, including a record four straight Super Bowl appearances. He called plays from the team’s inception in the AFL in 1960 to 1971, and again from 1977 until his retirement in 2003.
Miller also enjoyed a 43-year career at WBEN-AM/TV, now News 4, retiring as sports director on June 5, 1998.
Miller has been honored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame.
