    From WGRZ Channel 2 in Buffalo:

    If you thought Monday’s partial eclipse was cool, just wait seven years.

    On April 8, 2024 — just 2,422 days from now — a total eclipse will cover the entire Western New York region, stretching south through Cleveland, Indianapolis, Dallas and even central Mexico.

    In Niagara Falls, Destination Niagara USA President and CEO John Percy said he’s already preparing for worldwide media coverage in April 2024.

    From the Buffalo News:

    The date for Nik Wallenda’s tightrope walk across Niagara Falls will be decided in the next two weeks after negotiations with major television networks, Wallenda’s manager said Friday.

    Wallenda’s management team is in “very deep discussions” with the networks, which have expressed interest in filming the 1,800-foot walk across the Niagara Gorge and preceding training sessions.

    “We’re hoping for a two-hour prime-time special that will essentially star two major outlets: Nik and Niagara Falls,” manager Winston Simone said at a marketing meeting held in Niagara County’s Center for Economic Development.
