The lastest Broadcast Pioneers event took place on Tuesday, July 12th at 12 noon. It was a FREE tour of WHYY Radio and Television. They are our public NPR and PBS broadcast outlets for the Delaware Valley.
WHYY is located at 150 North 6th Street. That's 6th between Arch and Race in Center City Philadelphia. We met at 12 noon.
When we first met at 12 noon, we announced who will be our 2016 Person of the Year. Plus, we announced who will be our 12 living inductees to our Hall of Fame will be for this year. Several of them were with us. We also told you who our 10 posthumous inductees will be.
This was an exciting afternoon. Total running time for visiting both broadcast facilities was approx. 60 minutes in length.
Our next Broadcast Pioneers event will be on Wednesday, September 21st for lunch. Mark it on your calendars.
