NYSBA Hall of Fame Ceremony Postponed by Sandy

There is another casualty of the dangerous Hurricane Sandy.  The New York State Broadcasting Association has postponed its annual Hall of Fame reception originally scheduled for Thursday evening at the Paley Center.

“After discussions with the Paley Center, we simply cannot guarantee the venue will be operational by Thursday,” NYSBA president David Donovan wrote in an email. “It all depends on [the] severity of storm’s damage, availability of power and transportation.”

Donovan says the event will be rescheduled for a date to be determined in November or December.

This year’s class includes former WNBC sports anchor Len Berman, WPLJ (and former WHTZ/Z100) morning show host Scott Shannon, and WOR Radio staple Joan Hamburg.
