A TIMELY CONTINGENT: Looks like those New Orleans-themed packages in 10 Time Inc. magazines didn't go unnoticed. The Preservation Resource Center, which works toward the revitalization of New Orleans' historic neighborhoods, is recognizing Time Warner with the first-ever New Orleans Citizenship Award. A cocktail party at Jazz at Lincoln Center tonight will feature Mayor Michael Bloomberg as well as top executives from Time Inc., CNN and HBO. That includes Time Inc. editor in chief John Huey, who took 12 of his managing editors to New Orleans last year, a trip that resulted in numerous magazine packages on the city in time for the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Expected media presence, though, will exceed Time Warner's stable. The New Yorker's Paul Goldberger and Calvin Trillin are on board, as well as Columbia School of Journalism dean Nick Lemann, who is a New Orleans native and whose son (with former House & Garden editor in chief Dominique Browning) works at the Preservation Resource Center. Harry Shearer, the voice of Homer on "The Simpsons" and a Huffington Post blogger, will emcee. — Irin Carmon
