Remembering Ed Koch
Tuesday, February 19th
CUNY Graduate School of Journalism
219 W 40 Street (7th & 8th)

An evening of reminiscences about Ed Koch by those who knew, worked with and who covered him. Among those likely to kick-off the conversations are Gabe Pressman, WNBC; Rich Lamb, WCBS Radio; Stan Brooks, WINS; David Diaz, formerly of WNBC & WCBS-TV and Greg David, director of Business & Economic Reporting at the CUNY and a columnist & blogger for Crains NY Business.

Ed Koch
But the heart of this event is more likely to be "open mike." All who'd care to share personal stories about their experiences covering the late mayor are welcome to hold-forth. Not a wake by any means – we hope the evening will reveal as much about the process of having covered Ed Koch and New York City during his era as it does about the pluck of the man. This event is for journalists. Please RSVP here if you might attend.
9/11 Tribute Center Seeks Journalists Who Covered 9/11
911 Tribute Center
Training will be held March 8 and 9th for Volunteer Guides at the 9/11 Tribute Center. Tribute volunteers are people who were directly impacted by the events of September 11th and are the official guides for the National 9/11 Memorial.

Many journalists were there to report the truth on September 11th. Volunteering for Tribute would be no different. By joining the program and telling your story on the world stage of the 9/11 Memorial, you will have a profound impact on how others think about the role of journalists, a seminal event in history and the very nature of what it means to be a human being.

Share your September 11th story. Help others understand, remember and recover. Become a 9/11 Tribute Center volunteer guide at the National 9/11 Memorial.
