THE WANAMAKER BUILDING |   THE CRYSTAL BALLROOM

THURSDAY.  This years’ GPA World Heritage City Celebration featured a “Conversation with Vernon Odom”, retired journalist and honoree of the 2019 World Heritage City Celebration; it was edifying.

Vernon Odom, retired journalist, 6abc/WPVI-TV
Odom worked for 6abc/WPVI-TV in Philadelphia for more than 40 years.

The business community got to “hear first-hand accounts from major news events, locally and around the world, including highlights from every presidential campaign since 1976, reports from Nelson Mandela’s release from prison, the fall of the Soviet empire in 1989, the release of U.S. hostages from Beirut in 1991, the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, the Los Angeles riots, and more”.
