cencom leibner cooper editorial fellowship
The Center for Communication has received a generous gift from the Leibner Cooper Family Foundation in celebration of Richard Leibner and Carole Cooper's devotion to media education, the field of journalism, and diversity.
Carole Cooper and Richard Leibner have nurtured and advanced the careers of many of the leading journalists of our time. For more than 50 years, their firm N.S. Bienstock, of which they served as co-presidents, was synonymous with quality journalism. In 2014, Bienstock was acquired by leading global talent and entertainment company, United Talent Agency (UTA), which further strengthened and expanded their business. Today, with Cooper and Leibner still at the helm, UTA serves many of the biggest television news personalities, including Anderson Cooper, Chuck Todd, Don Lemon, David Muir, Norah O’Donnell, Bill Whitaker, Glenn Beck, Carl Bernstein, Dana Bash, Jeff Fager, Steve Kroft, Michael Gelman and many more.
The Center for Communication will annually award the Carole Cooper and Richard Leibner Journalism Fellowship to a New York area college junior, senior, or graduate student. The Fellow will receive a generous monthly stipend while interning at the Center for Communication during the course of the school year. Students from underrepresented communities are encouraged to apply.
