At the monthly luncheon of the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia, a couple of Cruisin' 92.1 personnel spoke with a pair of Channel 10 broadcasters. Former Sportscaster Jack Whitaker had broadcast for WCAU-TV, CBS Sports and ABC Sports. Also pictured in the photo is Channel 10 personality Gene Crane who hosted "Candy Carnival" on CBS-TV when we were all kids. Gene started broadcasting on WCAU in 1945 and moved to TV when Channel 10 came on the air in 1948. Gene now lives in Mexico and was selected as "Person of the Year" for 2003 by the Broadcast Pioneers.
