NBC 10 is WCAU, Channel 10 in Philadelphia which has been on the air since March of 1948. NBC took over ownership of the station in September of 1995. The Master of Ceremonies was Broadcast Pioneers member Herb Clarke, who worked at the station for almost 40 years. You can watch the panel's complete remarks.

After our panelists' opening remarks, we had a question and answer session. Questions came from members in attendance. There are ten questions. Each is a separate piece of video. However, once the video starts, it will automatically go from question to question with just a slight pause in between each question.

Watch the questions
