WFUV to honor Summerall

WFUV's annual fundraising gala always is an A-list event - no surprise given the Fordham station's long sportscasting alumni list, including the guy for whom the Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award is named.

This year's recipient is Pat Summerall. He'll be presented Monday by his old teammate, Frank Gifford. (Tom Brokaw and Los Lobos also will be honored.)

"They were the voice of the NFL for many, many years,'' Gifford said of Summerall and John Madden, "and it was only because Pat could say an awful lot in very few words, and working with Madden that was a good thing, because he had to.”

For information and/or tickets, see wfuv.org/gala or call (212) 930-8898.
