Former Lieutenant Governor Underwrites One-Week Finance Journalism Intensives

CUNYJSchoolLogoRichard Ravitch, who served as New York’s Lieutenant Governor in 2009-10 and currently advises the judge overseeing Detroit’s fiscal crisis, has made a very interesting move. Per a report by Crain’s New York, Ravitch made a donation to CUNY for the purposes of teaching journalists how to better cover the subject of finance. The inaugural one-week intensive is set for August 18 at the Graduate School of Journalism:

“I decided the reporting was not very comprehensive on the subject,” Ravitch said. “Nobody was connecting the dots on the federal budget issues and state and local budget issues…”

“One of the more useful things I could do with my good fortune was to train journalists to write about this subject seriously.”

The Man Behind the Ed O’Neill Misquote

So who is this Greg David (pictured), the TV Guide Canada critic who forced his bosses to apologize today for the way he mangled Ed O’Neill‘s recent LA press conference words about Glee star Jane Lynch?

Based on a fall 2009 interview at Toronto’s Ryerson University, he seems like a decent enough guy. He’s actually been with TV Guide since 1991 (!), working his way up through the production and research departments.

Greg David Leaves Crain’s For Higher Education

greg.jpgTomorrow will be the last day for Crain’s New York Business‘ editorial director Greg David, who is leaving the pub after more than 33 years at Crain Communications.

David is leaving his full-time gig at Crain’s to become the director of the business and economics program at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. “I have been teaching there for three years and it is an exciting opportunity,” he said in an email today.

However, David said he will still write a weekly column in Crain’s print edition as well as a daily blog on the Web site, and “may do other editorial projects from time to time,” so he won’t be far from the pub. He’s also planning on making media appearances on WCBS Newsradio 880 and WNYC, giving speeches and moderating panels in addition to his duties at the journalism school.

During his long career at Crain’s, David spent 23 years as editor of the paper, joining just a few months after it started publishing in January 1985. In September 2008, the paper hired a new editor, Xana Antunes, and David moved into the role of editorial director. He previously worked for The Sarasota Herald Tribune and The Charlotte Observer.
