WNYC Throws A Gala To Thank NYT For Selling Classical Music Station

Last night, New York public radio station WNYC threw a gala at Gotham Hall to celebrate its recent acquisition of New York’s classical radio station WQXR and honor its former owner, The New York Times Co.

Hosted by Alec Baldwin, the evening featured performances by folksinger Judy Collins and opera diva Deborah Voigt. David Sanger, a New York Times correspondent and host of the “Washington Report” on WQXR — and grandson of the station’s founder Elliott Sanger — presented the Times Co. with an award, accepted by Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr., commemorating the company’s stewardship of WQXR since 1944.

Later, Baldwin announced that the winner of the evening’s raffle would get a radio — actually, an Internet radio tuned to WQXR. “The New York Times got a piece of glass, for the millions and millions of dollars they’ve coughed up,” he said. “A piece of glass. The winner of the raffle gets a radio.”

The Morning Media Menu, What’s Your NPR Name Edition

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu, Steve and I figure out what our NPR names are — sort of like you porno name but with a liberal elitist twist (kidding! Our NPR devotion allows us to joke about such things). Suffice it to say neither of us give Soterios Johnson a run for his money.

We also talk the WSJ‘s new iPhone app and its potential significance, O’Reilly ambushes, and Ashton Kutcher‘s Twitter dominance.

Mornings With NPR, the Illustrated Edition

hotel.jpgThose of you who listen to our morning podcast may remember that a couple of weeks back we experimented for a few days with morning cable TV…and shortly thereafter went into some rather intense NPR withdrawal (also, we missed Soterios Johnson). Well, those of you out there who have an equally strong devotion to ‘Morning Edition’ but perhaps want some visual accompaniment to go along with it may enjoy this.

It’s a very fun blog called Morning’s With NPR belonging to Brooklyn illustrator Alessandra Olanow who each day whips up awesome illustrations of that morning’s stories. The one above is from Tuesday’s story about micro hotels in New York.
