We had hoped to resume in-person News Geezers lunches at Victorios in North Hollywood on Sat Oct 30.   The program there would have featured our all-star political panel.

COVID concerns have forced us to postpone that session... until the second half of 2022.

The Zoom session for Sat Oct 30 is cancelled... because of my own scheduling conflict.   I apologize.

Looking ahead...

We currently plan to resume in-person lunches and programs at Victorios in North Hollywood starting with the lunch featuring Lew Irwin (and his special guest Steve Binder) on Sat Jan 22.

Lew is the original KABC-TV anchor... a radio legend here in L.A… and an author.  He has some great stories to share... and Steve Skootsky has some terrific videos to show.   

On Sat May 14 we'll be saluting the life and very memorable times of the late Tom Snyder.  Kelly Lange and Al Primo both intend to be there... and Tom's daughter Anne Marie hopes to join us as well.   And yes, Steve has a wealth of great videos for that lunch too.

So the News Geezers will be returning in-person, a lot later than planned... but better than ever!
