  • Today in media history: ‘The Workingmen’s Picnic’ and other early Labor Day reports

    What was the news coverage like for the first Labor Day celebrations? The Library of Congress and its “Chronicling America” collection gives us some newspaper examples and this description of the first parade:

    On September 5, 1882, some 10,000 workers assembled in New York City to participate in America’s first Labor Day parade. After marching from City Hall, past reviewing stands in Union Square, and then uptown to 42nd Street, the workers and their families gathered in Wendel’s Elm Park for a picnic, concert, and speeches. This first Labor Day celebration was eagerly organized and executed by New York’s Central Labor Union, an umbrella group made up of representatives from many local unions. Debate continues to this day as to who originated the idea of a workers’ holiday, but it definitely emerged from the ranks of organized labor at a time when they wanted to demonstrate the strength of their burgeoning movement and inspire improvements in their working conditions.

  • A&E Networks purchase stake in Vice Media

    The Hollywood ReporterNew York Times | The Huffington Post | Financial Times |

    A&E Networks will pay $250 million for a 10 percent stake in Vice Media, a deal that values the company at 2.5 billion, Paul Bond wrote in The Hollywood Reporter Friday.

    Earlier in the day, Time Warner dropped its bid to purchase a stake in Vice Media, a deal reportedly fell through because the two companies could not agree how much Vice Media was worth, Jonathan Mahler wrote for The New York Times. He wrote one possible outcome for the deal might have included giving Vice control of HLN, a network owned by Time Warner that has seen flagging ratings recently.

    Vice chief executive Shane Smith told Financial Times that the investment from A&E was “a great deal,” adding that it will enable the company to grow for another three years.… Read more

Here is a brief look at some of the Comings and Goings from early-summer so far:

 

 

 

Congratulations to CNY-Central reporter KATIE CORRADO, who just headed to Connecticut to become FOXCT's weekend morning anchor/weekday morning reporter. Katie has been with the Syracuse NBC affiliate for two years. 

 

A big congratulations to CNY Central's BRIAN ERB, who has after 42 years at the station. Brian started at the NBC affiliate in November of 1971, making him one of the longest-serving photographers in the Syracuse market. We're told his retirement plans are to “kick back and enjoy his grandchildren.” Brian has been honored with dozens of awards over the years, including SPC Career Achievement in 2002.

 

Another veteran is leaving the media scene in CNY.  JOHN MARIANI has retired from the Post-Standard/Syracuse Media Group after a 32-year career. His long stint at the paper included reporting on government, neighborhoods, politics and business, as well as editing NewsLine.
