Talkback: Ep 05- Purpose

May 6, 2020

Pushing forward may be difficult right now as we all search for a sense of purpose. On this week's episode of Talkback, host Cooper Boardman talks with three WAER alumni from three separate decades about how their station experience shaped their own ambitions.   



Len Berman, an eight-time Emmy Award winner, has worked in both sports and news. He tells reporter Cory Berberian about calling basketball and hockey on WAER during the 1960s. 

Tim Benz is the pregame host for the Pittsburgh Steelers radio broadcast. He was on the sidelines for one of the most famous catches in Super Bowl history, one of the best moments in a career shaped by his 88.3 FM experience in the 1990s. 

Kevin Brown of ESPN and the Baltimore Orioles, a 2011 SU graduate, chats with Jaron May about growing up on Long Island as a big Yankees fan. Brown details calling the 2010 Pinstripe Bowl in the Bronx for WAER and what that meant for him personally as well as the group.

Talkback is a WAER Sports podcast produced by Karl Moeglein. New episodes are released every Wednesday.
