Bayliss Roast: This just in....

This just in from Eloise Greene, our fearless internship coordinator:
Bayliss Roast Report

Last week I attended the John Bayliss Broadcast Foundation’s annual Radio
Roast – a black-tie fundraiser for the Foundation’s scholarship and
internship programs. One of only fourteen “Bayliss Schools,” Ithaca
figured prominently at the event, attended by 300 radio executives:

- Dan Henning ’06 received the 2008 Bayliss Horizon Award for outstanding
young talent in radio. He is associate producer for The Bill Press Show,
the syndicated progressive morning program. Dan’s speech was very well

- A video compilation piece of interviews submitted by several of the
Bayliss colleges was shown. It featured appearances by six Ithacans:
Bayliss 2007 interns Josh Giordano, Meghan Loftus, John Napolillo, and
Jessica Zerillo, 2007 scholarship winner Chris Wilson, and Chris Wheatley.
Ithaca was also mentioned often in the print program.

The deadline for the Bayliss 2008-2009 scholarship is April 30. One lucky
IC student active in radio will receive $5000.00. Three letters of
recommendation are required, so if you are asked you will know what this
is about. Details at http://baylissfoundation.org/appletter.html

Thanks, Eloise!
