The focal point of the activities: The unveiling of a portrait in memory of long-time Mornin Show host Irv Sharp.
Artist Eric Fitzpatrick and Irv's widow, Mary Lee Sharp did the honors before a crowd of family, friends, and W-D-B-J employees, past and present.
After the portrait's unveiling, General Manager Bob Lee was presented with the station's 40th Anniversary Quilt.
Lee says the celebration was a good time to remember Cousin Irv's contributions to Roanoke television.
