    Twice a year (in November and March) Steve makes several predictions regarding the political and economic condition in Israel, and in the Middle East in general. He looks back at events since the last war with an eye toward understanding their implications, and projecting forward. How did those predictions turn out and what will the next 6 months look like?

    Steve Schreier, a resident of Massachusetts since 2008 and now Southwest Florida, and the president of the Schreier Group, which provides consulting to non-profit organizations and philanthropic foundations. Prior to that, Steve served as consultant and Senior Vice President of the American Technion Society from 1986-2007, during which he was responsible for the conceptualization, creation and implementation of a comprehensive development structure and program throughout the United States. He has also served in executive positions in Jewish Federations and as a community and campaign consultant for the Council of Jewish Federations.

    Steve's personal ties to Israel are deep-rooted. He lived on a kibbutz for a year of work-study in 1962, and moved to Israel in 1970 to conduct research on his doctorate.

    The Rhapsody is the astonishing story of composer Leo Spellman, Holocaust survivor who sets out on a riveting and emotional journey towards artistic liberation at the age of ninety-eight. The film features a musical masterpiece lost for more than fifty years, a secret wartime diary revealed for the first time, a gripping account of survival told through bold animation and narration by Stephen Fry, and powerful live concert performances by orchestras in Canada and Europe.

    WGCU’s 5 Year Plan of Growth

    presented by

    Corey Lewis

    General Manager of WGCU

    Corey Lewis joined WGCU as general manager in May of 2021. WGCU has embarked on a five-year plan to grow the NPR and PBS portfolio of programs with a new emphasis on locally originated content.  Corey will describe why this strategy runs counter to that of commercial media, which are under tremendous pressure to deliver value to shareholders while scaling back under a changing advertising economy.  As a non-profit public broadcaster, WGCU’s only mission is to serve this community while being sustained by the audience. WGCU’s expansion starts with the local radio newsroom, investigative reporting, and in-depth reporting on the website and through podcasts.  Their TV services are expanding through local news and more of the beloved Untold Stories local series that reveals the deep and rich history of Southwest Florida. Corey will discuss the progress they are making to meet this plan.

    About the Presenter

    Lewis spent the first 18 years of his career in commercial TV in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Connecticut and Rhode Island. In 2002 he joined WBUR, the public radio station on the Boston University campus, as director of corporate support and development and then served as station manager for 15 years.

     On joining WGCU, he settled in North Naples with his wife, two sons, and everyone’s favorite member of the family, Emmy the Australian Labradoodle.
