June 1, 1996: Media Studies Center Moves to Midtown Manhattan

Date: June 1, 1996

The Media Studies Center, a 1984 Gannett Foundation initiative continued by the Freedom Forum, moves from Columbia University in New York City to midtown Manhattan. The move enables the Center to more effectively continue its work as a major media industry think-tank offering conferences, publications, fellowship programs, events and exhibit space for Newseum/NY.
