  • Salon agrees to recognize union, starts negotiations on contract

    Management at San Francisco-based Salon Media has agreed to start talks on a first union contract with its workers, it was disclosed Saturday.

    “Salon Media has agreed to recognize the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) as the collective bargaining representative of its editorial staff, whose decision to unionize was unanimous,” the union said in a formal statement.

    Workers voted last month to join a union. The company could have forced a formal vote overseen by a third party or perhaps otherwise stalled union recognition. It did not, which now triggers the process of attempting to bargain a first contract.

    “The men and women who write, edit, and produce stories for Salon.com have gained a voice on the job, and the intelligence and unity they have brought to the project is an inspiration,” said Lowell Peterson, Executive Director of the Writers Guild of America, East. Read more

  • New York Review of Books responds to New York Times’ rebuttal of nails’ exposé critique

    New York Review of Books

    Richard Bernstein continued his beef with the New York Times’ nail salon exposé and says the editor’s response was late and insufficient.

    Bernstein’s article, published on the New York Review of Books website on Friday, came in response to the letter issued by New York Times editors earlier this week. And so, the debate rages on over ‘Unvarnished’ by Times Reporter Sarah Maslin Nir.

    The Times’ rebuttal called his critique as “industry advocacy” while Bernstein responded by focusing on the paper’s lack of response to its allegation that classified advertisements don’t offer $10 a day for workers, as was reported by the story. Bernstein is a part owner of two New York City day spas that are operated by his wife and sister-in-law, both Chinese natives, in an industry with many Asian immigrants. Read more

  • American Journalism Review to cease publication

    American Journalism Review will cease operation after almost 38 years of publication. The announcement was made on the publication’s website Friday evening. The news comes exactly two years after it ceased the production of its print edition. The magazine was published by Phillip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland.

    “Over many decades, American Journalism Review has been an incredible value both to the college and to American journalists,” said Merrill College Dean Lucy Dalglish. “Unfortunately, we are unable to provide the resources needed to keep AJR the vibrant, innovative online publication it deserves to be.”

    The magazine will no longer be publishing “original” content. However, the existing archives will still be available on the website.

    AJR’s death comes almost one and a half year after its redesign in late 2013. Read more

Monday, 20 July 2015 20:10

According to iHeartMedia, Mark Wainwright has been named permanent Morning Drive Host at Newsradio 570 WSYR.

Wainwright did his first morning show at 570 WSYR in March of 2013, and soon became the designated fill-in host for veteran morning personality, Joe Galuski. When Joe was diagnosed with cancer in September of 2014, Mark hosted the show throughout most of Galuski's illness, and continued as a guest host after Joe's death in May.

“Mark Wainwright has become a familiar voice to our listeners and he has developed great relationships with our staff and clients,” said Rich Lauber, iHeartMedia Senior Vice President of Programming.

Wainwright spent more than 25 years as a morning personality, talk show host, and on-air personality at many respected radio stations around the country.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- CNY broadcasting legend Joe Galuski, who had been battling Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, passed away Thursday morning. Anchor Don Lark, clearly upset, broke the news to listeners during the morning newscast. Galuski had previously dealt with the disease in 1992. He had been off the air since last September, with Main Wainwright and George Kilpatrick filling in as guest hosts. His family said he had gone through seven rounds of chemotherapy and was most recently living in hospice care. The cancer was deemed "untreatable by conventional methods" according to the family's GoFundMe account, which had been set up to help raise funds to pay medical bills.
 
Joe has been in the business since 1975 and has hosted 570's morning show since 1998. The Press Club sends its thoughts and prayers to the Galuski family.

Syracuse Press Club honors Lazarus, more than 125 other journalists, at awards banquet

 

 

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- WSYR-TV anchor Carrie Lazarus was inducted tonight onto the Syracuse Press Club’s Wall of Distinction and more than 125 other Central New York journalists were honored at the club’s annual awards banquet.

Lazarus was the only journalist inducted this year onto the Wall, a permanent exhibit honoring the top journalists in the region, said press club President Josh Cradduck.

The Wall hangs in the theater lobby at the Onondaga County's John H. Mulroy Civic Center. Induction onto the wall is the highest honor bestowed by the club. About 70 journalists have been inducted.

At the awards banquet at Drumlin’s Country Club, special club awards were given to several other journalists: 

Former Syracuse.com / The Post-Standard photojournalist Michelle Gabel was awarded the Selwyn Kershaw Professional Standards Award.

Julie McMahon, a reporter at Syracuse.com / The Post-Standard, and Rachel Polansky, a reporter at WSYR-TV, were each named winners of the A. Brohmann Roth Newcomer Award, given to journalists with less than three years of professional experience.

Dennis Connors, curator of history at the Onondaga Historical Association, received the Philip A. Hofmann President’s Award for Best News Source.

More than 150 people attended the annual event that honors winners in the club’s annual Professional Recognition Awards contest for print, radio, TV, online and college student journalists. A full list of the winners is attached.

Two journalists from Central New York were the hosts at the dinner. Award-winning television correspondent Dawn Fratangelo, who is from Savannah, and Fox Sports NASCAR producer Mark R. "Smitty" Smith, of Baldwinsville, served as emcees.

They are the first two journalists the club has asked to return to Syracuse as part of a new initiative called SyracusePRODUCES. The initiative hopes to recognize talented journalists who have emerged from the Central New York area and connect them with current journalists in the area.
