THE CENTER HONORS showtime's DAVID NEVINS
Broadcasting legend Dr. Frank Stanton founded the Center for Communication with one mission—to bridge the gap between the media industry and academia. Each year the Center for Communication honors a member of the media industry with the Frank Stanton Award. This year, David Nevins of Showtime will be joining the ranks of such esteemed past honorees as Michael R. Bloomberg, Ted Turner, Tom Freston, Josh Sapan, Debra Lee, Shane Smith, Katharine Graham, and William S. Paley.
The Center’s annual event is much more Golden Globes than Academy Awards; it’s the one place media and entertainment executives (and rivals) gather to share riffs, chronicle behind-the-scenes anecdotes and deliver laughs. Toasts by such industry luminaries as Keri Russell, Louis CK, David Duchovny, and Fred Armisen have been worthy of Don Rickles or Sarah Silverman.
Funds raised at the luncheon enable the Center to provide dozens of free educational programs serving thousands of students each year. We connect college and university students with leading media professionals to learn about career opportunities and the latest developments in the ever-evolving media industry.
