Matt Underwood'90 returns to Sportspulse!
WBWC's Sportspulse welcomed back Matt Underwood'90 on this week's show (10/14/08). Now the voice of The Cleveland Indians on Sports Time Ohio (STO), Matt shared his professional story, as well as his experiences from the early Sportspulse days of the late 1980s. In addition to a great hour of sports talk on the Indians, the MLB Playoffs, and the Browns shocker against The Giants, - Matt was presented with his inagural class award to the WBWC Hall Of Fame - awarded at the 50th Reunion events this past May. (Matt was unable to attend due to the Indians broadcast being on the road in Cincinatti at the time). Current hosts Hank WInters and Tim O'Brian hope to share the mic with Mr. Underwood again soon!
Homing (Homecoming) Beacon!!! - WBWC 50th Celebrations continue with our Homecoming Picnic!
By popular demand we'll again be welcoming WBWC alumni for a cookout and reception during homecoming weekend, Friday October 3rd., starting at 5:30p. Bring a covered dish or desert if you like, but mostly just bring you! We're looking forward to seeing you, hearing your stories and sharing time. Also, we're still building our archive, so if you have any airchecks, old photos or keepsakes you can share with us we'd love to see!

Alumni come home to WBWC...
A quick word of thanks to all our alumni who made the trip home this past May 16th and 17th. We hope to make this part of WBWC.com a central hub of future interaction, and event announcements. Many of you have already sent in photos from our events (look for some of them in the upcoming PURSUIT alumni magazine). Along with those, We continue to welcome archival photos and recordings to add to our 50th Anniversary archive. Send them on in* - we know that without all of you - there wouldn't be a WBWC for us to work at now!
We're looking forward to many gatherings of our unique family in the near future. Keep checking back to this page on wbwc.com for future events, updates on fellow alumni, alumni/student projects and so, so, so much more! Soon you'll find links here to various social linking sites, including Facebook (already active, see the top left of this page), A Flikr photo pool, A professional group on Linkedin, our ongoing presence on MySpace, our listing on Wikipedia, and the original alumni gathering on Yahoo! Groups.
My continuing thanks for your work in the past, and your support over the years to make the first 50 the landmark that it is, and the launch pad for the second 50!
