Welcome to the Broadcasters Club of Florida!

Glad you found us! The Broadcasters Club of Florida is an organization composed of anyone with an interest in the broadcasting industry.   You! Each month, we meet over lunch to discuss the issues of the day, have a panel discussion, or hear from a wide variety of interesting speakers.   Many of the attendees have worked–or are still working– in the field.   But ANYONE is welcome to attend these interesting sessions.  Join us for networking, fellowship, and the chance to raise a few dollars to support future broadcasters through our scholarship program.

 After a wonderful November luncheon featuring retiring WFLA-TV anchor icon Gayle Sierens, we’ll go to the other end of the spectrum to hear from a primary anchor in the area who is at the relative start of her rising career.  We hope you’ll join us on December 12th when ABC 7 anchor Hayley Wielgus joins us for lunch.  She’s a graduate of Texas A&M,   received her Masters from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, worked in Texas and came to Sarasota several years ago as morning/noon anchor.  Last year she was promoted to the main anchor position where she anchors the 5, 6, & 11pm news.


We hope to see you there!  All events are open to the public!  RSVP through this website or  323-2363

Thank you.
