2002 WFIL Family Reunion

This was a night to remember, especially for me. The event was held on December 6, 2002, at the Manayunk Brewery Restaurant in Manayunk, Pa. Despite a early winter snowstorm that occurred on December 5th, over 100 people were able to attend. Below are a series of pictures of some of the former air talent, with "yours truly."
