"The Role Sports Plays in Local Newscasts & Broadcast Programming"

Our monthly "Third Wednesday" Luncheons are simply Hit After Hit; Smash After Smash; Blockbuster After Blockbuster. This was another "monster" lunch where the "stars" don't wait to come out at night. They were there at lunchtime!

Our February luncheon was on Wednesday, February 19, 2014. Our topic was "The Role Sports Plays in Local Newscasts & Broadcast Programming." Our MC was Broadcast Pioneers member Joe Pellegrino, formerly of sports guy for Action News and Channel 10.

We had many marvelous panelists including (in alphabetical order):

Harry Donahue, morning news anchor of KYW Newsradio, 1060
Harry Hurley, legendary South Jersey talk show radio host
"Big Al" Meltzer, former sports director for Channels 3 and 10
Larry Mendte, former main news co-anchor for CBS 3 and NBC 10
Jim Murray, former Eagles GM and current talk host on WPHT
Bill Vargus, former sports director WTF-TV, Channel 29 (Fox)

It all took place at the beautiful, newly renovated and historic Bala Golf Club, 2200 Belmont Avenue (across the street from the State Police) in the Wynnefield section of Philadelphia. Only minutes away from Channels 6, 10 and 17 and the radio stations in Bala Cynwyd.
