    In case you just wandered onto this web page, we are the News Geezers - an informal, friendly group of veteran Southern California TV, radio, print, web and PR journalists. We hold lunches quarterly.  Our mailing list is 370+ strong.

      Learn about the background of our group by clicking on the "About" tab above (or at the top of any page).  The names of all those on the mailing list can be found at the "RSVP/Roster" tab of this site.

         Credit for the name "News Geezers" goes to the late, great Bob Long.
        If you have questions or would like to be on the mailing list - and perhaps attend one of our lunches - please contact Bob Tarlau through the form you will find by clicking on the "Contact" tab.  Thanks and cheers!   Bob

    We'll have two more lunches this year:   Sat Jul 29 and Thr Oct 28.

    I'll take RSVPs for the July lunch once we're past July 4th.

    The location (once again) will be: Victorios in North Hollywood (at 10901 Victory Blvd. just east of Vineland).   Here's the link to the Google Map:
