As February began, so did Black History Month. On Tuesday, McDonald’s Tri-State Area Restaurants held their annual Black Media Legends luncheon at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.
This year’s class includes WCBS/Channel 2 sports anchor Otis Livingston (far right), WNBC/Channel 4 meteorologist Janice Huff, WABC/Channel 7 anchor Sade Baderinwa, and veteran NY1 anchor Lewis Dodley.
As Black Media Legends, the inductees were awarded a trophy. They are also part of the Faces of Black History poster, given free at the more than 600 area McDonald’s throughout February.
