Broadcast Pioneers member Allen Stone
in the WFIL-TV News Studio
Tuesday, March 24, 1970
One of the top radio newscasters of the sixties and seventies was Broadcast Pioneers member Allen Stone. When WFIL Radio flipped format to a contemporary rock and roll station in 1966, Allen Stone, a veteran of WFIL Radio for two decades was kept on the radio's news staff. Many thought that he wouldn't make it, but Allen became the "Dean" of the newscasters for rock and roll stations. It was he that led the way and started trends that others would follow.
The Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia has in its archive, four Allen Stone newscast clips. All are offered here for your enjoyment.
