Mayor Jim Kenney live on-stage interviewed by broadcast legend Larry Kane. Location TBD.
We are elated and honored that Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has agreed to have Larry Kane interview him live on the anniversary of his first year in office. We are ecstatic that Larry has also accepted. Neither needs an introduction in Center City.  Jim Kenney took office on Jan. 4, 2016 as the 99th mayor of Philadelphia.  Before, he served Philadelphians as a 23-year Democratic at large member of City Council, starting in 1991.  Larry Kane is the dean of Philadelphia broadcast journalism, having spent 36 years as a news anchor.  He is the only person to have anchored at all three Philadelphia network VHF TV stations.  Earlier, he was the only broadcast journalist to travel to every stop on the Beatles' 1964 and 1965 American tours. He has authored three books about the Beatles, as well as a memoir and a novel. Today he hosts Voice of Reason, a weekly news analysis program on the Comcast Network, as well as consulting for NBC and a contributing on KYW News RadioStart time is 7pm and the venue will be announced shortly.  Due to high demand, this is a members only event, so please go to our website or call the office to sign up.
