Silver Circle on Friday

Silver_circle_2016_2 (2)By Steve Novak, Board President

When I was growing up I would stare at a 21 inch tube in an ash box as the world was brought to my living room.  This magical box influenced me that there was a big world outside of my home and I could see it from my couch.  I was in awe of the  people could make this happen.

From the world of news and sports to children’s programming and other entertainment these people were some of the most influential in my life.

The Silver Circle Honors have over the past quarter century profiled some of the pioneers in our medium.  This continues this Friday, May 20th, when we come to honor some people who have made an extraordinary impact in the world of television both in front and behind the camera.  We also honor the memory of some broadcast legends who are no longer with us.

I encourage you to join us at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel in Chicago for the Silver Circle Honors Program as we induct the Class of 2016,  Honorees include Emily Barr, former General Manager of ABC 7, Lilia Chacon, former Fox 32 reporter, Mary Ann Childers, former CBS 2 and ABC 7 anchor, Jay Levine , chief correspondent at CBS 2, Dean Richards, entertainment reporter at WGN TV and Frank Whittaker, vice president of news and station manager at NBC 5.  We will also honor posthumously, P.J. Hoff, Len O’Conner and Tim Weigel.

I hope to see you there.
