About the News Geezers!
November 18, 2017
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 nearly 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
You will find photos (to the left and below) and the video links (to the right) covering our most recent News Geezers lunch - Sat Oct 28.
Above the photos you will find links to all the shots provided by Ross Kestin and Bob Tarlau.
The video was taken by Vince Mack and David Tarlau... along with Pepperdine students Andrew Lucero and Alexander Bonelli. You will find it in two parts. Enjoy!
At the lunch, attended by 62, the delightful Evelyn DeWolfe - who was married to KTLA founder Klaus Landsberg - joined George Lewis in presenting their book "Line of Sight."
Evie's son - Cleve -Landsberg also took part in telling the unique story of the founding of the station that came to be KTLA Channel 5 in Los Angeles.
"Line of Sight" can be ordered on Amazon.
In addition, Dr. Art Ulene showed photos and spoke about his 81st birthday trek up to the summit of Africa's Mt. Kilimanjaro.
That was our last lunch for 2017. The next one is Sat Jan 27 2018.
Ken Davis will present his book "In Bed with Broadcasting" - to be published in January.
I will ask for RSVPs right after the holidays.
The location - once again - will be Victorios, 10901 Victory Blvd. in North Hollywood.
Links to video of our Sat Jul 29 lunch can be found on the Video page of this site.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS to each of you... and the best in health and joy during 2018.
Thanks to the 400 people on the News Geezers mailing list for your continuing support.
Cheers, Bob Tarlau
