Thursday night, I was at the Tilles Center Atrium at LIU Post for the first ever WCWP Hall of Fame induction ceremony.  The inaugural inductees were Art Beltrone, Hank Neimark, Dr. Herb Coston, and Prof. Virgil Jackson Lee.  The latter two were inducted posthumously.

You can see the rest of my pictures from this fantastic night in my public Facebook photo album.  Enjoy!

10/17 UPDATE: On Saturday, at Homecoming, the WCWP’s 2013 Hall of Fame class will be announced.  That has inspired me to post pictures from the 2012 induction ceremony to this post rather than refer you to Facebook.

Desserts, coffee, milk, and tea were served:


Pete Bellotti, Mike Phillips, Jeff Kroll, Phil Lebowitz:

Dan Cox, the WCWP Station Manager, read a statement from a relative of the late Prof. Virgil Jackson Lee:

Twice during the ceremony, Tracy Burgess interviewed a WCWP alum.  First up was Bernie Bernard:

Bernie got a round of applause:

Hank Neimark was introduced by two friends.  First, Jay Elzweig…

And then Jon Korkes:

Bill Mozer introduced Art Beltrone:

Then, Roger concluded the ceremony:

I didn’t want to create photo confusion between the professional photographer and myself.  So, after this one, the remaining pictures are candid shots:

It was quite a night at Tilles.  Congratulations to the inaugural inductees to the WCWP Hall of Fame.
