Lunch with San Diego’s leaders!
This intimate mentoring lunch is designed to connect Young Executive Members with San Diego’s top echelon leaders. Seating is VERY limited, and reservations are required.
Jeff Light grew up in Buffalo, N.Y., where his father was editor of the local newspaper.
Over the last three decades, he has worked for newspapers and their web sites. He has been an editor, a reporter, an intern, even a "hopper" – the person who throws the bundles of papers from the delivery trucks in the dead of night.
He has worked with small papers whose paychecks could barely clear the local bank, and with big ones that paid out hundreds of millions of dollars to their owners in one decade, then went bankrupt the next.
He believes that journalism is one of society’s greatest callings. That is to say, he feels it is one of the best things a person can do with his or her life.
He studied poetry and creative writing at Brown University, then started as a newspaper reporter in Syracuse, N.Y., in the early ‘80s. He has an MBA from University of California, Irvine.RSVP to 619.234.5200
