  • Media outlets counter Hulk Hogan’s motion to block press from viewing sex tape

    Hulk Hogan isn’t the only one who can call in a tag team.

    Several media organizations on Tuesday moved to oppose a motion by the former professional wrestling star — real name Terry Bollea — to prevent news organizations from viewing at trial a sex tape that spurred a multi-million dollar invasion-of-privacy lawsuit.

    The organizations, which include First Look Media, BuzzFeed, CNN, The Associated Press and Vox Media, claim that Hogan’s motion infringes on the freedom of the press. From the motion:

    The overarching principles at stake — that the public is entitled to know what takes place in the courts of the state of Florida, and the First Amendment right of Intervenors to report what happens in the courtroom to its readers — transcend this case alone.

  • ProPublica has an ‘Emerging Reporters Program’ for journalists of color

    ProPublica

    ProPublica put out a call for young journalists of color to apply to its “Emerging Reporters Program” on Monday. The program will offer a stipend of $4,500 per semester, mentorship and a week at its New York newsroom to five college students “who work or want to work at college journalism outlets – newspapers, websites, radio stations or TV stations. We want to make college journalism accessible to students for whom it would otherwise be economically out of reach,” ProPublica reports.

    ProPublica’s mission is to shine a light on abuses of power, producing stories of moral force that provoke change. There are currently few minority reporters who specialize in investigations. Without more such voices, visions and points of view, there is every reason to believe that important stories are being overlooked.

  • Peter Oborne, who accused The Telegraph of ‘fraud,’ rejoins The Daily Mail

    The Guardian

    Peter Oborne, the former Telegraph political journalist who resigned from that newspaper to protest its practice of soft-balling multinational bank HSBC, has rejoined The Daily Mail as a political columnist, The Guardian reports:

    “I am thrilled to be going to the Mail,” said Oborne. “I have greatly missed writing a political column and I am looking forward to starting once again for the Daily Mail in the autumn. I have also started a regular column for Middle East Eye.

    Oborne made headlines earlier this year when he quit The Telegraph, lobbing accusations of weak coverage and advertorial favoritism as he did so. Writing for Our Kingdom, Oborne said managers at The Telegraph were discouraging stories critical of HSBC after the international bank suspended its advertising contracts with the newspaper.

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.

A. Brohmann Roth

Herald-Journal / Herald American

Club President: 1975

A true newspaperman of the old school, even after Brohmann Roth became an assistant city editor and later a columnist, at heart he never forgot that he was first and foremost a reporter. He also never forgot his roots in Syracuse.
