McDonalds Holds Annual Black Media Legends Gala

As the calendar flipped to February, it became Black History Month. For the annual honor, the tri-state McDonalds restaurants select Black Media Legends and Trailblazers. Each year they are showcased on the place mats of customers’ trays.

This year, the lunchtime event moved from the Waldorf Astoria to the Plaza Hotel.

The 18 people are standouts in their fields (TV, radio, and newspapers). But this was all about the great WNBC anchor Sue Simmons, who stepped down last June.

Most of the presenters and award winners mentioned Simmons in their speeches, or ad libbed, due to her remarkable career and presence.

Ironically, John Noel, a reporter with WNBC since 1998, never mentioned Sue’s name in accepting his trophy. FishbowlNY did speak to Noel, a Brooklyn native, about sharing this year’s class with his former colleague.

Clear Channel and Empire State Building Light Up The Sky

Last night Clear Channel and the Empire State Building lit up the New York sky to demonstrate the building’s new LED light system. It was the first-ever light show put on by the ESB, and it featured a performance by Alicia Keys.

Keys — along with radio personalities Elvis Duran (Z100); DJ Clue (Power 105); Helen Little (106.7 Lite fm); and Cubby, 103.5 KTU — set things off at 9:00 pm.

Above is a video of the lights along with the accompanying music.

Power 105.1 to Award High School with a Special Prom

Power 105.1/WWPR is offering tri-state high school students the chance for a memorable senior prom. The Clear Channel station is running a contest that will give one lucky high school a “Power Prom,” featuring mixers DJ Envy, DJ Clue, DJ Prostyle, and DJ Self providing the soundtrack to the prom.

Students are asked to take the Knowledge is Power pledge, where they strive to be a local leader, a positive example, and to commit to bettering themselves through higher education or community service.

Those interested can download the registration form at Power1051fm.com for their principal to fill out. The next step is to actually take the Knowlege is Power online pledge and encourage friends as well. The high school that gets the highest percentage of participation will be rewarded with the Power 105.1 Power Prom.

The Knowledge is Power pledge drive runs until May 2, and principals can register their schools until April 27.
