Another mystery photo from John Carroll Univ. Anyone recognize this man?

Thanks to Google and Tim Lones’ Cleveland Classic Media Website I found that the late Joe Finan was the Atlantic Weatherman for a time here in Cleveland. (The Atlantic Weatherman being sponsored by the old Atlantic Petroleum Company.)
My guess, then, is that the gentleman in the picture is Joe Finan.

Worked with Joe Finan when he did the Atlantic Weatrger at Ch. 3 in 1959. That’s not he. Try a young, slim Earl Keyes.

Make that Atlantic WEATHER. Sorry.

That’s pretty amazing.
I was a kid when Mr. Jingeling was a fixture of Christmastime in 1960s Cleveland, so his alter ego Earl Keyes certainly doesn’t appear as I would have expected in the above picture. It looks as though he represented Atlantic very well in whatever he was doing there.
As a side benefit to taking a guess at the identity of the person in the picture, it was interesting to discover Joe Finan did television work in Cleveland as the Atlantic Weatherman. I formerly knew of him strictly as a well established radio personality.
Thanks for the ID, Dan.

That is absolutely Earl Keyes.
