We are excited about the 2015 Binghamton Broadcasters Reunion, which will take place at the
Binghamton Double Tree by Hilton Hotel.
Well over 200 people attended the last Reunion in 2013.
This year, part of the evening presentation will be a
SALUTE TO BINGHAMTON TELEVISION.
We will be featuring clips from the early days
of Channel 12, 40, 34, and 46.
We will also be acknowledging those TV broadcasters, Past and Present that have made it all possible.
More details will follow.
Of course, we haven't forgotten our radio friends with
more surprises on the horizon.
We're in the home stretch of accepting nominations for our Broadcaster of the Year and Living Legends awards. If you have someone in mind, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Binghamton Broadcasters Reunion is an annual event, held every other year.
The evening consists of an optional buffet, followed by visiting,
and an awards program at 8pm
