Apple NYC Announcement iTunes UniversityAll Things D and Mashable are both reporting that Apple is planning a secret media-related event that will occur in New York City sometime this month.

The iPad 3 is most likely NOT the focus for the event, nor is any kind of television / AppleTV gadgetry.

All Things D believes that the event will focus on some small-scale advertising or publishing revelation, while Clayton Morris, anchor of Fox and Friends on the Fox News Channel, thinks it is an event originally scheduled in the fall that will focus on iTunes University and Apple in education.

So far, Morris seems to have the most detailed information about the shindig, saying that, “the event will be in New York rather than in the Silicon Valley because New York is more centrally located for textbook[s] and publishing.”

Eddy Cue, Apple’s Vice President of Internet Software and Services is said to be involved with the event. Cue is in charge of many of Apple’s media units, including the iTunes Store, iBookstore, the App Store, iAd and Apple’s iCloud services.

As for a statement from Apple? Well, in traditional Jobsesque fashion, they are mum on any news of an upcoming event or release. Stay tuned!
