“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.
