The Florida Broadcasters Club will meet this Friday (Feb. 15) at the SaraBay Golf and Country Club in Sarasota. The featured speaker will be longtime broadcaster Bruce DuMont, founder of The Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago.
As host of “Beyond the Beltway”, Bruce DuMont is heard from coast to coast every Sunday night on more than 60 of America's major radio stations, including WLS-AM/Chicago. The television version of the program airs every Sunday at 10:30 PM on WYCC-TV/Channel 20 in Chicago.
He is the nephew of Allen B. DuMont, the founder of the DuMont Television Network, America's first commercial television network, and one of the co-inventors of the cathode ray tube.
Bruce DuMont is Founder and President of The Museum of Broadcast Communications, one of only two broadcast museums in the United States. The Museum includes America's only Radio Hall of Fame, which DuMont brought to Chicago in 1991.
The cost of the luncheon is $20. You do not need to be a member of the club to attend. Click here for more information.
