John Facenda
Broadcast Pioneers banquet

Broadcast Pioneers member John Facenda was the Dean of local anchors in Philadelphia during the sixties. It was his voice over WCAU-TV, Channel 10 in Philadelphia that gave the city the news. We have a brief clip of John doing the TV-10 news on Monday, March 15, 1965. While the original broadcast was on television, we only have the audio. The quality isn't the best, but it's all that's available at this moment.
