Things are shaping up very nicely for the 2015 Binghamton Broadcasters Reunion, to be held Saturday, September 19, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in downtown Binghamton.
We are pleased to announce that Bill Parker, the Dean of Broadcasting in Binghamton has been chosen as one of five New York State Broadcasters to be inducted into the New York State Broadcasters Association. That recognition will take place in New York City on June 23, 2015.
During our Reunion, a re-creation of the induction ceremony will take place with Bill, and a representative of the New York State Broadcasters.
Joining Bill in the NYS Class of 2015, will be Al Roker and three others.
Past inductees into the NYS Broadcasters Hall of Fame are Walter Cronkite, Harry Harrison, Bill Paley, Don Imus, Charles Osgood and more. Check out the NYS Broadcasters website for a complete list.
Bill is in very good, and well deserved company.
The Binghamton Broadcasters Reunion is an event that is open to all Binghamton Broadcasters, friends, and significant others.
At our last Reunion, over 200 people were in attendance.
The evening consists of an optional buffet, visiting and meet and greet, and the awards program.
If you think you'd like to join us, drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
