Save Wednesday, April 23 For Meeting at LaFamiglia
We will be meeting at LaFamiglia Restaurant, 107 E. Main Street, Bogota, at 6:30 p.m. on Wed., April 23. It will be $22 a piece (including tax and tip), and the GSJA will be supplying the wine, since the restaurant does not have a liquor license. Dan, who arranged the meeting, also has arranged for Marc Ernay, WINS sports director, to be the speaker.
Ernay is living out his childhood dream as 1010 WINS sports director and morning drive anchor, positions he has held since January, 2012. He is a 1988 graduate of Hofstra University who, for most of the past two decades, has been the station's modern-day “Magellan,” covering multiple Super Bowls, World Series, MLB All Star Games, NBA and NHL Finals, Big East and NCAA Basketball Tournaments, US Open Tennis Championships, PGA Championships and US Open Golf Championships.
Marc also mans the finish line in Central Park for 1010 WINS annual coverage of the New York City Marathon.
He and his wife Marni live in New Jersey, surrounded by their (mostly hers, he swears) menagerie of stuffed bears, monkeys and turtles.
