About the News Geezers!
Close to a capacity crowd came together on Sat Nov 12 to attend the latest News Geezers lunch.
Tribute videos and often emotional speakers saluted the legacy left by both the late Bob Long and Saul Halpert. Bob's wife - Joan Rebecca Long and Saul's son - Jim - were among the speakers. There are tribute pages to both Bob and Saul on this website. Click on their names above - or the appropriate index tabs to get to those.
In addition, the Press Photographers Association of Greater Los Angeles presented Pete Noyes with a lifetime membership to honor his astounding career as a producer and investigative journalist. Ninety-nine attended the lunch, the third highest in the six-years the News Geezers has been active.
The video from this lunch is now on line... in three parts. You will find the links in the column to the right. Stills are on this page.. with links to them all in the left and right columns.
Our next lunch will be Sat Feb 4... followed by lunches on the last Saturdays of April, July and October in 2017. That's April 29, July 29 and October 28. The location will continue to be Victorios Italian restaurant in North Hollywood.
Our mid-summer lunch this year - on Sat Jul 30 - featured 70 of you... and a strong presentation by Tom Colbert and Tom Szollosi on Colbert's D.B. Cooper investigation... and from former KNBC producer Frank Snepp on his ageism suit against NBC over his dismissal from Channel 4. The "Video" page has the links.
Tom will be back to update his work on the Cooper case at our Feb 4 lunch.
Cheers, Bob Tarlau
