Reunion weekend for WFAN-AM NYC


It was July 1, 1987 that Suzyn Walman opened her mic at 3:00 pm and welcomed listeners to the launch WFAN-AM New York as the nation's first all sports radio station. This weekend, to mark its 20th anniversary, WFAN is bringing back many of the hosts who have graced its airwaves as part of the "WFAN Reunion Weekend."  WFAN's special lineup will include a return to the air of former hosts and anchors, Howie Rose, Ian Eagle, Jim Lampley, Russ Salzberg, Bill Mazer, Suzyn Waldman and Spencer Ross, among others, on Saturday, June 30th and Sunday, July 1st.  Original WFAN hosts Greg Gumbel and Art Shamsky will also be calling in at times to be announced over the weekend.  To commemorate this achievement, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has signed a proclamation announcing that this Sunday, July 1st is "WFAN Day."
