Congratulations to the crew of SBE66 for supporting our chapter at the monthly meetings.  Nice to be the top dog out of the 117 chapters in the US!  Special thanks to our Chairman, Ken Holden, who diligently reminded us (usually with a phone call) that there was somewhere we needed to be on the last Thursday of the month.  His coordination of meeting hosts and site preparation for presentations has certainly paid off.  We’ve had some great gatherings with informative presentations and good fellowship.  It’s nice to know that the 50-something broadcast market guys can compete with the top ten.  Check the link to the SBE National Awards Dinner streamed video (held on October 8 in Verona, NY)) in this Newsletter. more…
