Opening day in Erie, Pennsylvania was a big event! Reporters from our public broadcasting host, WQLN, were on hand to cover our arrival as were local ABC affiliate WJET-TV, NBC affiliate WICU Channel 12 and the Erie Times.

Meanwhile, new Mobile Facilitator Lilly Sullivan facilitated our first interview in Erie, a remembrance by family members of John Kanzius. He was an inventor, radio and TV engineer, and ham radio operator in Erie. John passed away in February of this year but made headlines after he developed an innovative treatment for cancer using radio waves.

Lilly came out of the recording just in time for the official ribbon cutting! Yours truly facilitated the second recording of the day with Santa-about-town and Gannon University mainstay, Joe Luckey, seen here with Karla Mullenax Wludyga of Gannon University.
