The first time Newsday wrote about WFUV's "One on One" sports talk show, in 1987, WFAN was brand new and the venerable Fordham station already had produced several generations of broadcasting stars.
Well, here we are many years later, and the longest-running sports talk show in New York still is going strong 40 years since its launch by Malcolm Moran, who later went on to a career as a sportswriter at Newsday - among other places - and now heads the National Sports Journalism Center at Indiana University.
To mark the anniversary - and to honor longtime executive sports producer Bob Ahrens - nearly 100 alums gathered Monday night at a Bronx restaurant.
The list included Knicks announcer Mike Breen, Yankees announcer Michael Kay, Nets announcers Chris Carrino and Ryan Ruocco, YES studio analyst Jack Curry, Mets radio engineer Chris Majkowski, ESPN "Around the Horn" host Tony Reali and ESPN researcher/reporter Doug Mittler, also a member of the famed Newsday sports part-timer class of 1982.
Another WFUV alum, someone named Vin Scully, sent a video message. He was at Fordham even before "One on One" premiered.
