This was the event that college students waited for all year! It was time for our annual Broadcast Pioneers Symposium. Area college students saw first hand a major market television station and heard advice from current and past broadcasters. It was Saturday morning, November 3, 2012.
Our moderator was Broadcast Pioneers President Jerry Klein, Executive Vice-President of Anne Klein Communications Group and former newsman at KYW Newsradio and WCAU Radio (now WPHT). Panelists included (in alphabetical order):
Pat Delsi, former owner of WWSJ Radio in Camden
Paul Gluck, former KYW-TV News Director
Trudy Haynes, former KYW-TV News Anchor/Street Reporter
Melony Roy, KYW Newsradio's Social Media Editor
Dick Sheeran, former KYW-TV Anchor and Street Reporter
Dick Standish, former KYW Newsradio & KYW-TV Reporter
We wish to thank our hosts for this symposium, CBS 3, KYW-TV and the CW Philly 57, WPSG-TV. Without their support and hard work, this event just wouldn't have been possible. Special appreciation to Shelley Hoffman, the Public Affairs Manager for both stations.
