The only constant is change, especially in our business. This luncheon was right from industry headlines. Our crowd found out everything that's going on at More FM, WBEB-FM.
Early in November, the radio station, one of the few independent major market operations in the country will have a new president and CEO, Member Jim Loftus who will report to the station's board of directors. Member Jerry Lee moves from President to Chairman of the Board. Blaise Howard is no longer with the station. Member Jay Meyers has joined the board and will be responsible for day to day operations until Lotus starts in November.
This luncheon is so today that we postponed our originally scheduled luncheon to bring everyone up-to-date. Our MC for the afternoon was member Ed Cunningham.
Our speakers included (in alphabetical order):
Chuck Knight, their Program Director for More FM, WBEB-FM
Jerry Lee, the new Chairman of the Board of the station, More FM
Jay Meyers, the newest member of the station's board of directors
Jenn Ryan, longtime WBEB Personality & one half of the morning show
It all took place on Wednesday, October 21st 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.
