The 35th Annual
Frank Stanton Award Luncheon

About     Tables/Tickets


Honoring Rita Ferro
Disney Advertising Sales

Each year the Center for Communication honors a member of the media industry with the Frank Stanton Award. This year, Rita Ferro, President, Disney Advertising Sales, will be joining the ranks of such esteemed past honorees as Michael R. Bloomberg, Ted Turner, Tom Freston, Josh Sapan, Debra Lee, David Nevins, Katharine Graham, and William S. Paley.

Our Annual Gala

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.


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.
