So sorry to learn of the passing of former @wusa9 anchor and reporter Mike Buchanan. He was the best, funniest, and most connected colleague. Responsible for breaking many of the biggest stories in DC. Love you Mike. pic.twitter.com/CrAPXwilJP

No one had a bigger influence on my news career than Mike Buchanan. Never met a better or more generous reporter. He got me hired at Channel 9 in DC & showed me, by example, how to do the job. Mike broke a lot of stories & started a lot of news careers, Just loved the guy. https://t.co/CUosimjlIA

I have a very unique Mike Buchanan story — and it doesn’t come from the summer I interned at Channel 9.
On a Friday at ol’ WNVT-53 in Fairfax, during the famous 36-hour college hoops marathon, Buck visited, got UP ON THE DESK & sang “Danny Boy”
Right, @MichaelJBakerJr ?
