Rosenfield of Glory
September 23, 2007 9:00 PM
Nearly 100 executives from all over the United States converged at New York’s “21” Club last week for a surprise “Roast & Toast” gala in tribute to Jim Rosenfield Sr., who was president of the CBS Television Network from 1978-82 and then executive VP of the CBS Broadcast Group from 1982-85. The event was spearheaded by a group of ex-CBS sales executives, including Albert Crane, Barbara (Babs) Clark and Dick Robertson, and Mr. Rosenfield’s daughter Laurie. Walter Cronkite, Mike Wallace, ex-CBS Broadcast Group President Gene Jankowski and Nielsen CEO Jon Mandel were among the notables on hand for the evening, which featured entertainment by—who else?—CBS vet Bob Schieffer and his Honky Tonk Confidential band.
