Bill Baker heads up new media center at Fordham University

The new Bernard L. Schwartz Center for Media, Public Policy and Education at Fordham University will research and promote the potential role of public broadcasting in news reporting, the Graduate School of Education announced today. Its work will study the nation's newsgathering traditions and investigate "solutions for their survival," a statement said. At the helm is Bill Baker, who was WNET's president for 20 years. The center is funded by the Bernard and Irene Schwartz Foundation, which supports mainly New York-based educational, medical and cultural institutions.
