At the time of onsite registration, a satellite alumnus/a should register all guests who will require wristbands. The alumnus/a does not have to be present when their adult guests check-in and receive their wristband, so long as they have been previously registered by the alumnus/a. However, the alumnus/a must be present to register and wristband minor children or grandchildren.

October 27, 2016: CLASS OF ’75 MINI-REUNION, NEW YORK CITY:

Meet old friends and new, and hear a fascinating talk on the election,
by our classmate and star journalist Kathleen McCleery, followed by lively discussion!

“CAMPAIGN COVERAGE 2016: HYPE OR HELPFUL?”
Kathleen McCleery ’75
Ferris Visiting Professor of Journalism, Princeton University

BIOGRAPHY:
Kathleen McCleery found her calling in broadcast journalism in 12th entry Holder Hall on the news desk at WPRB and as the station’s first female news director. A few months after graduation, she took her first job as production assistant at WETA-TV in Washington, D.C. After ten years and promotions there, a stint at NBC News, and several years freelancing, she landed at the PBS NewsHour where she served as deputy executive producer from 2005-2013.

Along the way, she’s produced interviews with every President since Jimmy Carter, covered many political party conventions, and had a hand in the NewsHour’s election coverage every year since 1996. In May, she covered a Trump rally in Albuquerque.

Kate and her husband, fellow classmate Bob Martinez, moved to Corrales, New Mexico in the fall of 2013. There, she discovered a new passion: reporting stories on camera for the first time (at age 60!). She’s a special correspondent and producer for the PBS NewsHour filing occasional stories (about 20 so far) on issues ranging from politics to the environment, education, science, health care, and the arts.

The opportunity to return to Princeton as a visiting professor of journalism for the fall semester 2016 was irresistible. She teaches a weekly seminar course, JRN 447 Politics and Media: Covering the 2016 Campaign, and reports that the students are smart, engaged and fun. Kate is “in residence” with a terrific apartment just a half mile from campus. Bob splits his time among NJ, NM, and DC where he continues to do legal work with his firm. They have two grown children. Their son graduated from James Madison University, their daughter from Princeton in 2011.
