On Wednesday, March 18, 2009, the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia saluted NBC 10. It all took place at the beautiful Bala Golf Club, 2200 Belmont Avenue in Philadelphia! Just minutes away from Channel 6 and Channel 10 and the radio stations in Bala Cynwyd.

Our panelists were:

Tracy Davidson, NBC 10 anchor of "All That and More"
Bill Henley, Meteorologist and co-host of the "10" show
Dave Parker, NBC 10's Assistant News Director
Jamie Simmons, NBC 10's Digitial Assets Manager
Lori Wilson, co-host of the "10" show and news contributor

In part, we talked about the changes to local news in a digital age and how NBC 10 planned to deal with it. Our moderator was Broadcast Pioneers member Bill Baldini. Plus, Les Waas spoke about the Golden Years of Radio with audio excerpts from our archives.

Meet and greet (networking) started at 12 noon with a full-course lunch including salad, coffee or tea and dessert being served at 12:30 pm. The cost was only $25 per person and was open to all our members, any person in the industry or associated fields; both people now active and retirees. You did NOT have to be a member to attend.

Complete Audio Windows Media!

The audio rolls. That is, once you have the audio playing, it will automatically go from part one to part two without you doing anything additional. In our opinion, the Real Audio is better than the Windows Media edition.
