We kicked off the New Year with our Sports Spectacular. So much was left undiscussed that we decided to continue the sports talk in February. Well, this was certainly another big smash.
Everyone who’s anyone was there! It all happened at the beautiful Bala Golf Club, 2200 Belmont Avenue in Philadelphia! Just minutes away from Channels 6, 10 and 17, plus the radio stations in Bala Cynwyd.
Our MC for the afternoon will again be Joe Pellegrino, former sports anchor for WPVI and WCAU-TV!!
Our panel included (in alpabetical order):
Dan Baker, public address announcer for the Philadelphia Phillies & sportscaster
Skip Clayton, sports book author, sports broadcaster and station programmer
Tom Lamaine, former WIP DJ/sportscaster & former KYW-TV meteorologist
Vince Papale, sports broadcaster and former Philadelphia Eagles football player
Pete Thompson, 97.3 ESPN Sports Host, former Sports Director, WMGM-TV
Lou Tilley, former KYW-TV Sports Director, now broadcasting football in China
Plus, we had a little fun time before the panel discussion started. We showed you 8 photos of well known broadcasters during their childhood. You got a chance to guess who you thought it was. What fun!
Also, we asked our panelists and moderator to come prepared with several humorous stories. It did. Wow, what stories.
