It was a who’s who last week when the largest Russian-language radio station, Davidzon Radio, marked it’s 10th anniversary of providing news, information and unbiassed reporting to the Russian community at a stellar celebration at the Orion Palace.
Station founder and president Gregory Davidzon was joined by the hoi polloi of local pols and other notables, as he shared the station’s history and his achievements.
“Success can be measured in many ways,” he said. “Davidzon Radio has a large, responsive audience, but what is most important is that we are able to affect lives.”
Elected officials included Comptroller Scott Stringer, District Attorney Ken Thompson, Staten Island District Attorney Daniel Donovan, state Sens. Marty Golden, (R–Bay Ridge) and Simcha Felder (D–Midwood), Assemblyman William Colton (D–Gravesend), Councilmen David Greenfield (D–Midwood), Mark Treyger, (D–Coney Island) and Chaim Deutsch (D–Midwood), in addition to Kings County Democratic Chairman Frank Seddio, former Comptroller John Liu, former City Councilmen Lew Fidler and Mike Nelson, and onetime candidate for Mayor Rev. Erick Salgado, among others.
As to the turnout our pal Gregory said, “The large number of elected officials who joined in our celebration, combined with the number of community leaders from outside of the Russian community, is confirmation that Davidzon Radio has become an acknowledged part of New York City life.”
