Longtime AAJA member and retired journalist AL YOUNG was selected as an Honorary Member to the Walter Camp Football Foundation during its 50th anniversary All-America awards weekend (Jan.12-14, 2017) at Yale University in New Haven, Conn.
The WCFF perpetuates the name of the man recognized as “The Father of American Football” and oversees the annual selection of the oldest college football All-America team in the country that Camp — the first Yale football coach and team captain — started in 1889.
Journalists, college students and media industry professionals of all kinds are invited to AAJA New England’s mixer. Consider this a casual meetup in the WBUR building to enjoy good pizza and good conversation, plus learn about the Asian American Journalists Association and its student VOICES college program.
About the VOICES Program: VOICES is a rare opportunity for college students to develop multimedia and reporting skills in the company of industry professionals from all over the world. Just as newsrooms across the country are adjusting to smaller staffing and new technology, the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) has redesigned its student convention program to simulate the convergence newsroom of tomorrow. This innovative opportunity, which will celebrate its 27th year in 2017, trains students and professionals before and during AAJA’s annual convention. Learn more about the program and opportunities to participate as a student or a mentor here.
2017 marks the 75th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066, which made the WWII imprisonment of Japanese Americans possible. The Day of Remembrance program, titled, “National Security and Civil Liberties – 1942 and 2017,” will feature a panel discussion comparing the World War II incarceration of 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry, two-thirds of them American citizens, to the current wave of Islamophobia and xenophobia.
Now that we’ve all survived one of the craziest elections in history — and boy, what a time to be a journalist — it is time to get together and share our war stories and catch up with our AAJA friends and colleagues. It will be an informal, casual, fun gathering. We’ll also have a short chapter board meeting to plan/brainstorm events for 2017. Everyone is welcome; come and spread holiday cheer, or commiserate!
$2,000 is available to current students pursuing journalism studies and interested in a sports journalism career. The application deadline is December 15
Many of us know Al, as he is a long-time member of New England chapter. Al is an award-winning journalist who blazed many trails for Asian American sports journalists. He is the nation’s first Asian American sportswriter at a metro daily. He is also the first Asian American to cover the NFL as the New Haven Register beat writer for the New York Giants and Jets. While with the Register, he also wrote a weekly column that was the first in the country focusing on national and local personalities and trends in women’s sports.
Young’s career spans more than four decades. He was a writer and editor at the Boston Globe, USA Today, the New York Daily News, the New Haven (CT) Register and Bridgeport (CT) Post-Telegram.
In 2010, AAJA named Young to its inaugural honor roll as an “Asian American Pioneer in U.S. journalism.” He is a past president of AAJA’s Washington, D.C. chapter. Retiring in 2013 from the Boston Globe, Young is currently the advisor to the student newspaper at Quincy College (MA).
