    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

    Fifty-four members of the News Geezers attended our Sat Jul 29 lunch.

    To the left you will find the stills that Ross Kestin, my son David Tarlau and I shot.  Links to others are just above the photos.

     Vince Mack shot the video... assisted by David.  And I'll edit that over the next couple of weeks... and add the link to this page.

     We honored Dave Lopez... who (in June) marked 40 years at KCBS Channel 2 (still KNXT when he started) here in Los Angeles.

    It's an amazing run - by one of the sharpest television journalists anywhere.

    Please read about Dave on KCBS' website at:

    We also honored the passing of TV reporter Bill Smith... who worked at KTTV and KTLA... and is remembered fondly by many.

     Our next lunch - the final one for 2017 will be on Sat Oct 28.  The program is TBA.  I'll call for RSVPs starting in mid-September.

     Our lunch venue continues to be Victorios in North Hollywood... at 10901 Victory Blvd.   Click here to view the Google Map.  

     Videos and stills are online from our Sat May 6 lunch.   You will find the links to the two part video in the column to the right.

    Thanks to you all for the continuing support.

     Cheers, Bob Tarlau
