Press Release – October 15th, 2010
NEW YORK – The Association of Greek American Professional Women (A.G.A.P.W.) cordially invites you to attend their upcoming symposium, HONORING THE SUCCESS OF GREEK AMERICAN WOMEN IN THE NEWS MEDIA: An In-Depth Look at Their Contributions to Both Ethnic and National Media and Their Personal Journeys on the Road to Success. This event will feature a panel of several special guest speakers from the media and a tribute to the legendary Tina Santorineou, a pioneer voice in the Greek American community.
You hear their voices on the radio, see their faces on the television screen and read their words on the pages of newspapers and magazines; but their accomplishments stretch far beyond their careers. Greek American women have made their mark in the news media for generations; now let’s recognize their individual and collective success that has inspired countless members of the community and beyond.
At this symposium, AGAPW will honor legendary Ms. Tina Santorineou for dedicating her life to our community. Ms. Santorineou began co-hosting “The Sound of Greece” on AM Radio in 1972 with Theodosis Athas. Over the years she became the producer, director and voice of the program as well as the heart, soul and mind of the entire production. Ms. Santorineou was on the air and in our homes for 22 years.
Along with Ms. Santorineou, this symposium will feature the following confirmed, distinguished guest speakers:
- Alexis Christoforous, CBS News Business Correspondent
- Joannie Danielides, President and Founder, Danielides Communications, Inc.
- Anemona Hartocollis, New York Times Health Reporter and author of “Seven Days of Possibilities: One Teacher, 24 Kids, and the Music That Changed Their Lives Forever”
- Penny Manis, CNN Anderson Cooper 360, Senior Producer
- Accomplished young journalist Eleni Kostopoulos will moderate the discussion. Introductory remarks will be made by former network producer Dorie Klissas, who is currently the media director at NYU Langone Medical Center.
This is a complimentary event sponsored by the law firm Hughes Hubbard & Reed. Please join us on Tuesday, October 26 at Hughes Hubbard & Reed, One Battery Park Plaza, New York, NY, 10004 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. There will be a reception from 6:00-7:00 p.m. to be followed by a panel discussion from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
