Magic In New York
Jim Prevor’s Perishable Pundit, December 9, 2010
New York is getting ready for Christmas. The tree is up in Rockefeller Center, the Rockettes are kicking at Radio City Music Hall in the annual Christmas Spectacular. The Empire State Building is lit red and green, and the skaters are skating on Central Park. It’s a magical time in an incredible place.
Of course, the produce industry made its own magic in New York just last month as the trade gathered at The New York Produce Show and Conference, presented by The Eastern Produce Council and PRODUCE BUSINESS magazine.
Those who were there noted that there were a lot of people shooting photos and video. Back in the day when Lou Dobbs was dominating the news on topics like food safety and immigration, we had the opportunity to do many segments on the show, typically with CNN superstar correspondent Louise Schiavone as the reporter on the pieces.
Among her accolades, Louise, is a veteran not only of CNN, but also the ABC Radio Network and the Associated Press. She has received many awards including the Edward R. Murrow Award and is an Emmy Award Nominee.
With Dobbs off the air, Louise has been very busy doing a multitude of media projects plus helping young people by teaching at the Carey Business School at Johns Hopkins University. We knew Louise had a New York connection as well, as she has a masters degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. So when we started working on The New York Produce Show and Conference, we asked Louise if she would head up our video production effort.
We were very lucky she said yes.
There is a lot more video, but here is a little clip of what went on at the event:
