Longtime New York Times reporter Sam Roberts will be inducted into the New York Press Club Journalism Hall of Fame at this next month’s conference.
The half-day gathering, on October 1 at New York University, will be an immersive swirl through topics related to crisis and change as they apply to media, journalism and personal fortunes.
The award is given periodically to journalists whose careers in New York media are exemplified by long tenure, integrity and extraordinary achievement.
Political analyst and commentator Juan Williams is this year’s headliner for the Press Club’s Journalism Conference.
This year’s theme is “Crisis and Change,” and Williams will address this from his perspective having been dismissed by NPR for remarks about passengers boarding planes wearing Muslim attire.
