Alumni Event, New York with Special Guests - Tuesday 3 March
This year’s Alumni Reception in New York was held at the famous Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola on Tuesday 3 March.

Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola is one of the three main performance venues in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s home, Frederick P. Rose Hall. It has spectacular views of Central Park but is also an intimate venue which provided the perfect backdrop for guests to hear Nicole Young (MA International Journalism 2003), award winning senior producer for CBS News and the legendary 60 Minutes programme, be interviewed by Mandana Mofidi (MA International Journalism 2010), Producer of the VICE series on HBO.

The interview covered a broad range of topics reflecting the breadth of Nicole's journalism experience. Particular reflections included the challenges of producing relevant and reliable stories in a world of 24 hour-news, and the difficulty of reporting the plight of refugees in the Middle East.

After the interview, guests were also treated to old-school jazz, blues, and gospel from the Cyrus Chestnut Trio.
