The program will be in memory of Long Island journalist John Kominicki, with Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowitz and Gold Coast Bank Chairman and CEO John C. Tsunis, Esq. paying tribute.
Long Island’s own MarissaAnn, who rose to prominence competing on NBC’s The Voice, will sing the National Anthem.
Both the VIP Reception and the Winners’ Reception begin at 11 a.m., followed by luncheon and awards presentation in the Grand Ballroom.
Cohosted by notable broadcasters Lea Tyrrell and Drew Scott, award presenters include WCBS newsradio 880 anchors Craig Allen and Marla Diamond and PIX11 news anchors
Tamsen Fadal and Dan Mannarino. Winners of the Folio Awards are chosen by the public, and send a strong message back to newsrooms on what the news consumer wants and needs in its news feed.
Over the years, the program has proven to be a powerful tool for improving the public conversation, thanks in great part to the dedication and commitment of the leaders who volunteer their time to serve as Folio Awards judges.
