Welcome to

News Geezers started in 2010 with four friends and former TV news colleagues.  The idea was simple:  renew Southern California media friendships and make new ones.  In five years, the Geezers have grown and there are now 375+ on the mailing list.  We have quarterly lunches... each January, April, July and October.   Our next lunch is Nov 12.   We will be honoring the late Saul Halpert and Bob Long.  If you have a past in local media and would like to be added to the mailing list, drop me a note through the box to the right.  And check out our newsgeezers.com website (by clicking on the link or button above) to see video and stills of recent lunches.

Greetings from Bob Tarlau in Los Angeles. I am a semi-retired broadcast journalist - having spent 46 years full-time in television news producing, mostly in Los Angeles.  I have also been an American correspondent for Australian radio since the mid-1970's.  See the links to the right to listen to the live streaming - anywhere in the world - every weekday (Australian time).    My other main projects and organizations are below.  Clicking on the blue buttons will take you to the related websites.

I am the immediate past president of the  Journalism Alumni Association at California State University, Northridge.   The JAA has been busy with two programs:  Coaching and Speed Mentoring.  Click on the blue button above to see details of our program and goals on our website.

The 8-Ball Welfare Foundation is committed to helping Southern California journalists and photojournalists in need.    I am the foundation's chairman and treasurer.   Clicking on the blue button above will take you to our 8BallFoundation.com website - which has full details and our history.  Since the mid-1950's, we've been providing grants to broadcast, online, and print journalists who are behind the eight-ball and having a hard time covering food, rent, medical and other essential expenses.
Being a journalist is tough and we need to support each other. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help a colleague who is behind the eight-ball. The Donate page of the website will tell you how.
