Rudmans Make Major Gift to Temple’s TV Station

The couple helped launch the station with a similar donation four years ago.

Kal Rudman, the Cherry Hill radio legend whose Friday Morning Quarterback remains a bible for the industry, and his wife, Lucille, announced their second $1 million gift to Temple University’s TUTV yesterday:

“This is exactly what my wife and I wish to do with our money,” said Rudman, 84, a local philanthropist and legendary radio personality who helped Barry Manilow, Bruce Springsteen, Dolly Parton, and other greats in their careers.

The gift will support station operations and special projects. The station, which shows student films, news and entertainment shows, and faculty shows, can be seen within the city on Comcast Channel 50 and Verizon Channel 45 or online at
