KYW to Induct Lynne Adkins and Brandon Brooks Into Hall of Fame

KYW Newsradio in Philadelphia has honored two of its own by inducting longtime reporter and anchor Lynne Adkins and anchor Brandon Brooks into its Hall of Fame.

The KYW Newsradio staff nominated and elected the inductees, who join other Hall of Famers, including NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell and longtime Suburban Bureau Chief Jay Lloyd.

“This honor is long overdue for these two inductees who have devoted over three decades of their lives to being reliable news sources for the Philadelphia region,” David Yadgaroff, Senior Vice President and Market Manager of Audacy Philadelphia, said. 

“Not only has their professionalism set a high standard for our content, but their extensive backgrounds have taught the next generation of KYW Newsradio broadcasters to aspire to a new level.”

Lynne Adkins spent 34 years at KYW Newsradio as an anchor, reporter, and mentor. She honed her radio skills as an assistant news director and talk show host at WMGK, WPEN, WFIL, and WIP.

Meanwhile, Brandon Brooks served as a voice of news in Philadelphia for over three decades. He initially joined KYW Newsradio as a part-time anchor and reporter in 1989 and later became a full-time team member in 1993, where he primarily anchored the afternoon drive.
