Spectacular, sensational, informative, magnificent, dramatic, impressive…these are just a few of the words being used to describe our next luncheon. This September gathering is certain to be right up there where the air is rare! 50 Years of KYW Newsradio will be full of great stories, memories and tales of this legendary radio station. Can you hear the teletype in the background?
It all takes place on Wednesday, September 16th at the beautiful Bala Golf Club, 2200 Belmont Avenue in Philadelphia! Just minutes away from Channels 6, 10 and 17 plus the radio stations in Bala Cynwyd. Tons of free parking. Our moderator will be Jay Lloyd, long-time KYW Newsman.
