Yesterday, over 200 young professionals gathered at the WHYY studios for a networking event hosted by the Young Professionals Network. The YPN members and their guests enjoyed a great evening of networking at one of Philadelphia’s cornerstones for media in the region. The group enjoyed cocktails from Premiere and tasty hors d’oeuvres from The Pita Pit. The crowd also had the opportunity to hear remarks from Bill Marrazzo, President and CEO, who not only gave an insider’s view of the workings of WHYY but also stressed the importance of civic engagement during this volatile economic climate. Mr. Marrazzo, who is on the Board of Directors of public companies in the region, also answered questions from the audience that sparked quite a bit of conversation afterwards. All in all, it was another great networking event hosted by YPN.
