Communications Alumni Host Journalism Students at New York Times

CCNY Communications Alumni Anne Mancuso, Clyde Haberman, and Paul Winfield were kind enough to give a group of 15 CCNY journalism students a tour of the Times newsroom recently and sit down to discuss standards, convergence and other issues of moment.

According to Prof. Philip Kay, organizer of the professional development workshop, “It was a rewarding and energizing experience and we're very grateful to all of them for being so generous with their time.”

“We're lucky to have such committed alumni,” notes Prof. Kay, offering a special thanks to Anne for taking the initiative and doing the heavy lifting with planning and coordinating schedules.

In November, Communications Alumni attended the department's “Building Bridges,” special event here on campus, developed to build links between alumni and students. Each May, Communications Alumni host a fundraising and scholarship dinner. Watch this blog for news about the dinner and other important events. Recent grads are encouraged to join the CCNY Alumni organization. For info, visit:
