We hosted the 2012 Black History Month reception in our North Studio with KPIX-TV reporter Christin Ayers (pictured) emceeing.
The reception was in collaboration with Urban Solutions a foundation formed in response to a lack of accountability in the economic development of the area and the community’s need for increased small business resources and services.
Urban Solutions is comprised of neighborhood merchants, residents and grassroots community-based groups. Urban Solutions through its sponsor Comerica Bank purchased Black History Month vignettes which aired on KBCW-TV.
The reception featured more than 300 community members including Josie Thomas, CBS SVP & Chief Diversity Officer.
As usual community members networked with staff, producers, and assignment desk editors to pitch their story ideas and to learn how to get public service announcement aired and community events listed on www.cbsSF.com as well as celebrate Black History Month.
Next up is the Asian Pacific Islander Month reception set for May 8th.
