Spectacular, sensational, informative, magnificent, dramatic, impressive…these are just a few of the words that were used to describe our September luncheon. This September gathering was certainly right up there where the air is rare! 50 Years of KYW Newsradio was full of great stories, memories and tales of this legendary radio station. You could almost hear the teletype in the background!
It all took place on Wednesday, September 16, 2015 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 was Jay Lloyd, long-time KYW Newsman.
Our speakers included (in alphabetical order):
Steve Butler, the boss guy at 1060, KYW Newsradio
Harry Donahue, former KYW Newsradio morning news anchor
Ralph "Bud" Galow, former 1060, KYW Newsradio Technician
David Madden, current KYW Newsradio reporter, editor & anchor
Warren Maurer, former General Manager of KYW Newsradio
Bill Roswell, KYW Newsradio's Director of Digital News & Media
Bob Witten, former 1060, KYW Newsradio anchor and reporter

If you missed this one, you missed an extraordinary experience and a good time! But don't worry. Your friends and colleagues will tell you about it.
