WASHINGTON — It’s time to Get Uplifted, a time to take our minds off the negativity all around us and focus on the positive – the stories that lift us up! This morning, the good news comes from the Presidential Inaugural Committee. The Committee announced that they are bringing back D.C.'s own Charlie Brotman as announcer for Wednesday's inaugural parade.
At 93 years old, Charlie Brotman has announced every inaugural parade from President Eisenhower all the way through President Obama’s second inauguration.
President Trump unceremoniously replaced Brotman in 2017, but now that a new administration is set to take office, he's getting another chance to be a part of history.
Everyone loves a good comeback, especially from a hometown hero! Congratulations to Charlie Brotman.
The virtual “Parade Across America” which will escort President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris from 15th Street to the White House, is scheduled to begin at 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday.
