John Miller, chief executive officer of American Red Cross on Long Island, is one of about 35 distinguished community leaders who have been appointed to judge the news in the Fair Media Council’s annual Folio Awards program, a high-profile celebration of news that has been judged by the public to best represent what the Long Island community wants and needs in its news.
“I was my distinct honor to serve as a judge for the Fair Media Council Folio Awards. As the CEO of an organization always in the public eye, I find the work of the Fair Media Council to be incredibly important,” said Miller.
“This green-light ethics program, unlike any in the country, shows the media what the public wants in its news,” said FMC CEO Jaci Clement. “It’s an incredibly effective method for improving the quality of local news. We are honored to have such exemplary community leaders serve as Folio judges and make this program possible.”
Folio judges spend countless hours reviewing hundreds of news stories, which are submitted by media outlets primarily from the New York metro area, but often as far away as Canada.
Judging results will be made public at the FMC Folio Awards, a star-studded affair that is the biggest media event on Long Island, on Friday, April 24, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Crest Hollow Country Club. About 600 business, community and government leaders, as well as the media, attend. Major supporters to date include North Shore-LIJ Health System, WeiserMazars LLP, Protiviti, Hofstra University and the law firm of Murphy Bartol & O’Brien.
