May 18, 2016 – The NYFWA's 40th Elliott V. Bell Award Ceremony

Join members of the New York Financial Writers’ Association for the presentation of our 2015 Elliott V. Bell Award, which will be awarded to Dan Hertzberg for his significant contribution to the world of financial journalism during his 46 year career. Hertzberg, a 1988 Pulitzer Prize winner, is the 40th recipient of the Elliott V. Bell Award, which is named after the NYFWA’s founding president and which recognizes individuals who have made long-term contributions to financial journalism and have had a significant impact on the industry. 

Hertzberg has spent much of his 46-year news career covering financial crises and meltdowns, from the 1987 stock market crash, which earned him his Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Journalism, to leading coverage of the financial sector in the wake of the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis at Bloomberg News. That position followed a 32-year tenure at The Wall Street Journal during which Hertzberg covered a succession of beats that included banking, M&A and insider trading and rose through the ranks to become senior deputy managing editor in 2005.

As part of the evening, Hertzberg will moderate a panel with leading financial editors and reporters entitled "Will We Be Able to Spot the Next Financial Crisis?" The discussion will explore how – and if – financial journalists can spot the next financial bubble before it boils over into the real economy like the events of 2008. Hertzberg will be joined by Michael Siconolfi, who heads up investigations at The Wall Street Journal,  Lisa Abramowicz, who covers credit markets for Bloomberg, Nik Deogun of CNBC and the Financial Times'  Gillian Tett

The evening will begin with a short reception featuring drinks and appetizers. This event is only open to NYFWA members in good standing. Guests are welcome to attend for $15, which must be paid in advance. RSVP’s are mandatory, as you cannot get into the building if your name is not on the list.

When: May 18th, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Where: City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism, 219 West 40th St.
