Re: duPont Events, January 18 and 19, 2006
The Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards will be presented on Wednesday
evening, January 18, 2006, in Low Library in a ceremony hosted by Bob
Schieffer. Michel Martin of ABC News, Dean Nick Lemann and Columbia President
Lee Bollinger will join Schieffer in presenting the awards to 13 outstanding
television and radio programs. At the ceremony, we will be shooting final
scenes for our PBS documentary, Telling the Truth: The Best in Broadcast
Journalism, produced by FRONTLINE Producer Martin Smith.
The duPont Awards are the broadcast equivalent of the Pulitzer Prizes, and this
event is a gathering of the clan of the television and radio news industry. We
will need 25 students to volunteer to help us at the duPont events, and the
first 10 volunteers will be able to attend part of the reception. All
volunteers will be able to attend the ceremony. Please email
email@example.com to volunteer.
In addition to the awards ceremony on January 18, we will hold our annual
Winners. Circle discussion for students on Thursday morning, January 19, from
10:00am to 1:00pm in the Lecture Hall of the Journalism School. We will show
excerpts and discuss three of the winning programs with the reporters,
producers, and editors who made them. The lineup for these three discussions is
Broadcast students are required to attend the Winners. Circle, which will be
moderated by members of the faculty and the duPont Jury. All other students
and faculty members are welcome to join us if their workshops are not scheduled
at that time. The Winners. Circle is a wonderful opportunity to learn about
what makes great broadcast journalism at a local tv station, on public radio
and in a large-scale documentary for PBS.

Telling the Truth: The Best in Broadcast Journalism will air on PBS stations
nationwide beginning January 24. It will air in the New York area on
Thirteen/WNET on Thursday, January 26, at 10:00pm ET. Check local listings
