Emerson College To Induct Four To Hall Of Fame


Emerson College in Boston is well known for its award-winning, student-run station, WERS 88.9. On Saturday, June 3, this will be further acknowledged when the station hosts its Ninth Annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony and honors alumni who have gone on to contribute significantly to the broadcasting industry.

The 2017 inductees are Debra Daigle (pictured), MA ’83, a 30-plus year public radio veteran and current associate director of media relations at Wellesley College; Dave Thomson ’69, longtime radio host and rock jock for many markets from New York to Sacramento; Linda Coombs ’77, a 30-plus year radio veteran and operations manager at CBS Radio News in New York; and Roger Lifeset ’67, an independent record promoter based in California.


  1. Congrats to Deb Daigle, whom I had the pleasure of working with both on air and in public relations capacities. She is a top notch professional, a dedicated journalist, and even better friend. More than worthy of this honor and recognition. I could not be happier for her!
