Public Lecture - Ann Reynolds

The Challenges of Science, Medicine, and the Media"

When: Sunday October 19, 2014 @ 2PM

Where: Baruch Performing Arts Center, 17 Lexington Ave., Room 306 (The "Skylight Room")

When examining medical journals and their press releases, news producers must decide what is worthy of precious airtime (just because a journal has sent out a press release doesn't mean it’s good science!). In this lecture, Ms. Reynolds will discuss how medical stories are vetted as accurate and newsworthy, demonstrate how those techniques were applied to specific stories, and reveal whether they actually made it on air at ABC. She will also discuss the behind-the-scenes world of ABC news, and the various topics, cultural currents and debates that inform what goes on air.

Admission is free and open to the public. An audience Q&A and social will follow.

Ann Reynolds is a Senior Producer for ABC News Specialized Units. After graduating from Yale University, she began her career at ABC as a Producer/Director at Good Morning, America. Her work includes the blockbuster specials on Jaycee Dugard, Jacqueline Kennedy: In Her Own Words, Hidden America, and two hour-long programs on global health. Her book, Medical Mysteries (based on the high-rated series) was published in 2009 by Hyperion. Among her numerous awards, she has won two Emmys, a DuPont, two Peabodys, a "Freddy" from the AMA, and an Overseas Press Club award.

THIS EVENT IS CO-SPONSORED BY BARUCH PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
