Jim Memmott

Jim will talk about his memories of breaking into journalism by covering Greece for the Times-Union in the early 1980’s.  A time when Rochester was a two paper town, when Kodak was booming, when the schools were full. A fond look back, an ambivalent look ahead.

Jim Memmott is  a veteran of 37 years in Rochester journalism. He began as a reporter at the Rochester Times-Union covering Greece and Gates and went on to become executive city editor and then managing editor of the paper. Later, he moved to the Democrat & Chronicle where he served as managing senior editor.  Though retired from the paper, he continues to write the weekly “Remarkable Rochester” column.
