Baker Set For First Pro Football HOF Enshrinement As President
The Pro Football HOF on Saturday night will honor its seven member '14 class in what will be HOF President & Exec Dir David Baker's "first enshrinement as the museum's leader." Baker, who came on board in January, is seeking to build a corporate events space, hotel and conference center in Canton. Following the enshrinement, he will "submit the results of a feasibility study" to HOF trustees (BLOOMBERG NEWS, 8/1).
Meanwhile, Jay Glazer will be the presenter for fellow Fox NFL broadcaster Michael Strahan's enshrinement. Glazer "helped get Strahan involved in TV and told him to do as many TV gigs as possible when he played" (CANTON REPOSITORY, 8/1).
