Veteran sports broadcaster Ian Eagle '90 was inducted into the WAER Hall of Fame on Friday August 16, 2013 at the Joseph I Lubin House in Manhattan, NY.
Eagle is most notably known as the lead play-by-play announcer for the Brooklyn Nets on the YES network for the past 18 seasons. His work on YES earned him a New York Emmy for play-by-play earlier this year. In addition to his Nets duties, Eagle also broadcasts NFL football, NCAA basketball and Tennis for CBS Sports.
Jazz is one of those music genres that divides listeners into 3 basic categories: enthusiasts, acceptors, and avoiders. Enthusiasts are those that are passionate about the music and it's history. Acceptors might not necessarily know what they are listening to but often enjoy and accept what they are hearing. Avoiders...well they need no definition. The latest incarnation of the Bill Horrace and Dave Solazzo Experience attempts to bridge some gaps between enthusiast and acceptor and perhaps snag an avoider or two.
