Thursday – Novermber 10,  2022 – Jay Carney  Yale ’87   The role of White House Press Secretary

On November 10th at 11 AM EST, we are very fortunate in having Jay Carney, Yale ’87, as the featured guest on our monthly Zooms.  He is the son of classmate and track star Jim Carney who passed away too early in 2018. Jay became President Obama’s second press secretary in 2011 and remained in that position until 2014 when he joined CNN as a political analyst. Jay started as a journalist spending many years with Time Magazine working in its Miami, Moscow (he speaks Russian) and Washington  bureaus, eventually becoming chief of the D.C. bureau.  In 2008, he joined  Vice President Biden’s staff as Director of Communications. After leaving CNN in 2015, Jay was named Senior Vice President of Global Affairs for Amazon and earlier this year moved to Airbnb where he is Global Head of Policy and Communications. Jay will speak to us about the role of White House Press Secretary and give real insights more than we learned from CJ in The West Wing. He will also discuss the role of Amazon in today’s world and where Airbnb is headed. Lots to talk about and many questions to be asked. Hope you can join us!
