Taro Lives!: Confessions of the Sabres Hoaxer (Paperback)
Paul Wieland is a talented storyteller with a lot of mischievous tales to tell.
He began his professional career as an award-winning journalist for two metropolitan daily newspapers, the
Buffalo Courier-Express, and the Buffalo Evening News. He was next a public relations executive with General
Motors, until, in 1970, he became the public relations director of the NHL's Buffalo Sabres, where he worked
on-air in radio and TV for several years. As executive producer, he spent 25 years working as a director and
producer of Sabres TV, as well as on NBC, Sportschannel America, and world-wide hockey telecasts.
He left hockey to run a Massachusetts public television station for six years, also beginning a long association as a director or producer of college basketball. Instead of retiring, Paul joined the faculty of the Jandoli School of Communication at St. Bonaventure University, teaching various writing courses, sports TV production, and
on-air announcing. He is the author of two non-fiction sports books and a comedic novel on the sports business.
