John Higgins Memorial Set

Dec 11, 2006  •  Post A Comment

A memorial service honoring the late Broadcasting & Cable business editor will be held Tuesday in New York.

MTV Networks will host the event, which will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at The Lodge, the company’s commissary located in corporate headquarters at 1515 Broadway in Manhattan.

Those wishing to attend should contact Denise Galarza at MTV (212-258-8572 or denise.galarza@mtvstaff.com). Out of respect for Mr. Higgins, Discovery Communications canceled its holiday party scheduled for the same date.

Mr. Higgins died last month of a heart attack at the age of 45. The veteran journalist worked as finance editor for Multichannel News for eight years and joined B&C in 1997.
