A group of top Hispanic Journalists from the Phoenix area joined Collectivo for a panel discussion on January 20th. We had a great crowd and heard lots of great insights about breaking into the news business as a Latino, how to best pitch stories to these journalists, and the need for more diversity in Arizona newsrooms.
We had representatives from English and Spanish news outlets in TV, radio, and online journalism, including Telemundo, CBS 5 News, 3TV and KJZZ.
We’ve gathered some tweets from our audience and panelists about the event:
