NBC’s Bob Costas and CBS News anchor Jeff Glor are among the 50 alumni of the Newhouse School at Syracuse University to be honored in New York celebrating the start of the school’s second 50 years.
“We have a strong heritage of legendary alumni, who have helped build the Newhouse School’s reputation as the best,” said Newhouse Dean Lorraine Branham. “And we continue to watch new generations of alumni live up to that reputation. We chose these honorees because they represent the kind of forward thinking for which our graduates have always been known. They show us why ‘the best and the brightest’ come to Newhouse not to be followers, but to be leaders.”
TV newsers making the list include Chris Licht, executive producer of CBS This Morning. The celebration, dubbed the “50Forward” Gala, is set for Oct. 29.
