  • Samantha Bee’s solution for making money on local news? Lottery tickets
    Add Samantha Bee to the list of media thinkers with a scheme to make money in local journalism. On this week's episode of "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee," the "Daily Show" alumna became the latest late-night comedian to give journalism a boost. But, rather than put out a call for donations like her colleague John […]
  • AP style change: Singular they is acceptable ‘in limited cases’
    For the first time, The Associated Press now permits journalists to use "they" as a singular pronoun. The AP announced the style change Friday at the American Copy Editors Society conference in St. Petersburg, Florida. The change follows years of questions among copy editors, reporters and editors about the use of language specifically about people […]
  • Burned once, publishers are wary of Medium’s new subscription offering
    Late last summer, Kelley Calkins and her team began discussions with Medium to take their burgeoning company in a new direction. The Establishment, a scrappy, four-person outlet funded and run by women, was considering moving its site to Medium. Taking the plunge would mean free hosting, access to the company's minimalist content management system and […]

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.
