The "Mighty Macs" producer will be joined by four other honorees in a ceremony Thursday night.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia will induct five new members into its Hall of Fame Thursday night at a ceremony in the Crystal Tea Room in the Wanamaker Building in center city.
Among the inductees will be Tim Chambers, who operates Tango Traffic in Malvern and who produced The Mighty Macs, a film about Immaculata College's 1971 basketball championship run.
CBS traffic reporter Bob Kelly will emcee the evening, and Archbishop Charles J. Chaput offer remarks. Mayor Michael Nutter is also scheduled to attend.
