The forum, anchored by Nightly Business Report’s Susie Gharib, included GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt as well as Wharton finance professor Jeremy Siegel and senior executives from Haverford Trust.


Fundraising Videos

Local non-profit organizations turn to WHYY Advantage for broadcast quality video productions to show to prospective donors or at annual dinners or fundraising campaign launches. Among our recent projects, tribute videos for the Caron Foundation and fundraising videos for Children’s and Families First of Delaware.


Real Life Leadership Lessons

Hear it straight from the CEO at one of WHYY Advantage’s CEO Forums. From HR to CEO, held in May 2005, featured Independence Blue Cross CEO, Joseph Frick and Wawa, Inc. CEO Howard Stoeckel in a frank conversation with executive recruiter Howard Fischer. Our region’s executives have a forum in which to learn first-hand from those who lead some of our largest corporations.

The WHYY Studios are convenient for many organizations producing their own multimedia programs. Among our recent clients are Medical Crossfire, a production of Cardinal Health, for continuing medical education credits, Healthology.com, the website with up-to-date medical and consumer health information, and Sanofi-Adventis for a recent continuing medical education satellite conference.
