Grytte Newspaper Staff Tours CNN Offices with Alumnus Lex Haris '88

On Tuesday, May 19, the Grytte staff had the opportunity to visit the CNN offices in the Time Warner Center. Browning alumnus Lex Haris '88, executive editor of CNNMoney and 2015 Recipient of Browning's Charles W. Cook '38 Alumnus Achievement Award , arranged the tour in coordination with Grytte Advisor Jeremy Katz '04 and Director of Alumni Affairs Laura Lanigan. The boys were able to watch a live filming, visit a control room and enjoy an intimate round table discussion with Mr. Haris and his colleague, Patrick Gillespie, an economy and markets reporter. Mr. Gillespie said the students "all asked very thoughtful questions and were very well-spoken." Even Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide, passed by and said hello to the group. One of the youngest Grytte boys remarked, "It was a great experience to hear from people that have been in our shoes before. They had amazing advice and insight on working at a company such as CNN."
