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 more than 400 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
Our November lunch was a varied offering. Nearly 60 News Geezers enjoyed everything from Pepperdine University student journalists describing their achievements in covering both the Thousand Oaks shooting (in which a fellow student was killed) and the fires that came down to the edge of their campus to Art Schreider, former GM of KFWB, who spoke of dealing with suddenly becoming blind as he was managing a radio station in New Mexico.
Here is the Amazon link to his book "Out of Sight":
Art marked his 91st birthday two days after our lunch.
You will find still photos of the lunch to the left... and there's a link to the entire album. Thanks to Ross Kestin and Gary Sunkin for adding to the shots I took.
I am editing the video of the lunch and the links will be posted in the upper right column of this page. Thanks to Vince Mack and Andrew Lucero for their fine video work.
Our next lunch will be Sat Feb 2... when Steve Skootsky and I produce a 50th anniversary tribute to the Eyewitness News format.
And that's not just EWN on KABC-TV Channel 7... but a celebration of the format now used worldwide.
Special videos and special guests will be on hand. Please mark your calendars.
The venue once again will be Victorios at 10901 Victory Blvd. in North Hollywood. (Click on the address for the Google Map). Other lunches in 2019 are planned for May 4, August 3 and November 2 - all Saturdays.
Happy holidays to each of you. Thanks for your continuing support. See you February 2, 2019.
Cheers, Bob Tarlau
