It's a Double Bubble!
Visit Both Broadcast Facilities in One Morning!
The next Broadcast Pioneers event takes place on Wednesday morning, July 22nd. It's a FREE tour of two wonderful and exciting broadcast centers. One is a television station and the other is the home of three of radio stations.
Both are located at 4th and Market Streets in Center City. Save the date. We expect this event to fill up early. DON'T DELAY! RESERVE YOUR FREE SPACE NOW! There are three different tour times! Pick your tour time. Duration of the two stations combined is about 75 minutes.
Parking for this tour will NOT be provided. There are several pay lots nearby. Trains, buses and other public transportation are available.
WARNING: You MUST reserve for this event in advance. We are obligated to provide the stations with a guest list which they will give to security. If you are not on that list, you cannot attend. WE MUST HAVE YOUR RESERVATION BY 6 PM ON MONDAY, JULY 20th! However, we expect to fill up before that date!
Each of the three tours will first meet at WTXF-TV, Fox 29. They are located on the southeast corner of 4th and Market Streets in Center City Philadelphia. Pick your tour time. There are three choices. We expect the tours to fill up fast. Each of the three tours is limited to 30 people each. Tour times are at 9:30 am, 10 am and 10:30 am. Duration is about 75 minutes!
We'll take a 30 to 40 minute tour of Fox 29. While at WTXF, we will announce the posthumous inductees who will be inducted into our Hall of Fame in November. Two of these inductees worked at Channel 29 at one time or another.
After the television station tour, we will walk across the street to the CBS Radio Group. They are located on the southwest corner of 4th and Market. Entry to the building is on Market Street between 4th and 5th Streets.
At the CBS Radio Group, we will visit three of the CBS owned radio stations in Philadelphia. They are Sportsradio 94 WIP, 98.1 WOGL and Talk Radio 1210 WPHT.
Several years ago, we visited this facility but WOGL and WPHT were not at this location at that time. So this will be the first time we have toured these stations in their new "digs." Everything is different.
While at the CBS Radio Group, we will announce who will be our 2015 Person of the Year. They will be with us. Plus, we'll announce who our 12 living inductees to our Hall of Fame will be for this year. One of them will be "on the air" during our visit.
