  • 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.

  • 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 […]

Maureen Green

WTVH-TV
WIXT-TV

Like a lot of Central New Yorkers, Maureen Green came here for the educational opportunities and then never left. A native of Worcester, Massachusetts, Maureen came to Syracuse for graduate work at the S.I. Newhouse School of Communications.

Upon graduation Maureen took a job with hen WIXT, channel 9 as  reporter. Not long after that first job, Maureen was hired by WTVH, ewscenter 5 as it was known then. Maureen’s ability to communicate with an audience, and her pleasant, easy-going style led management to put Maureen in the anchor chair next to the legendary Ron Curtis for the Newscenter 5 News at Noon. She was part of a broadcast that at times pulled 50-60 percent of the audience in those days in the early

and mid 1980’s. A time before cable’s reach became so pervasive.

Soon after, Maureen was promoted and joined Ron Curtis on Newscenter 5 at 6. As the local news content of WTVH expanded to an hour, then 90 minutes, Maureen’s role ion the broadcast did as well. With Ron Curtis, she became the face of Newscenter 5. She was one of the constants at a station that changed its direction and branding several times over the years.

In 1993 she went to WIXT for three years as an anchor, before returning in 1996 to WTVH. When Ron retired in 2000, she became the
senior anchor on WTVH.

Maureen has proved to be an excellent communicator and ambassador for her station. The best examples of Maureen’s relationship with the audience can be seen during channel 5’s many live ‘remotes’ from communities around Central New York and a favorite of viewers when they visited the TV5 broadest
at the New York State Fair.

She was a fixture on election night coverage, numerous specials, and a comforting presence on the air in time of tragedy. She traveled to Northern Ireland for a special on Project Children, which sent kids from that troubled region to spend a summer in Central New York. Maureen was also on the anchor desk delivering the news on such stories as he Labor Day Storm, 9/11, economic booms and busts, and SU trips to the Final 4.

Maureen has garnered numerous awards from the state Associated Press Broadcasters Association and the Syracuse Press Club. In 2006 she received the Press Club’s Gus Bliven-Joe Ganley-Mario Rossi Career Achievement Award in 2005. Maureen has also been recognized for her efforts within the community, named one of the Syracuse Newspapers Movers and Shakers of 1987, Women in Communications Communicator of the year in 1993.---Lou Gulino

 

"Paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and foreign shot and shell."--Hugo L Black, Associate Justice, US Supreme Court (Ruling that upheld the press’s right to publish the Pentagon Papers)
