Jim Donovan’s Tasty Talk – and a great lunch –
satisfies a packed house at Yangming.
Nearly 80 guests filled the Yangming ballroom to hear Jim Donovan, the Emmy-award winning anchor at CBS3 News, give a “Tasty Talk” to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Jim’s talk about making a difference was, in the words of our guests, “thoughtful,” “inspiring” and “really funny.”
Jim took us back to his childhood on Staten Island. While the other kids were outside playing ball, Jim was in the house, watching the news at 4, at 5 and again at 6. He shared how, to his amazement, his early on-air reviews of kitchen appliances proved to be just the kind of stories that national news was hungry for. And he said that reporting on the visit of Pope Francis opened the door to becoming a news anchor – in spite of “bawling on camera” when the Pope blessed the children.
There’s a new Tasty Talk on the last Wednesday of every month. Reserve now to hear rising media star Kyree Terrell of MyNEWPhilly.com on November 29.
