The WMMS Buzzard mascot was introduced via cartoon in a weekly magazine in 1974. The Buzzard ushered in a wave of popularity for the Cleveland rock station. Over the years, The Buzzard has appeared a variety of promotional material for WMMS, from billboards to buttons. David Helton is the artist who illustrated the Buzzard, though he was not originally commissioned to do it. In fact, Helton sent in a complaint to the station in the form of a cartoon featuring a buzzard. The program director happened to see it and a mascot was born.
