CBS NEWS AT NLGJA NEW ORLEANS
Aug 31 2019
SATURDAY, AUGUST 31
Panel: The Queer Quota
Is it enough to have LGBTQ representation based solely on sexual/gender identity, or is it more important that they be “obviously” LGBTQ? What constitutes diversity in a newsroom and on-air. What does representation mean? This was brought up during Q&A at a session last year and it seems like a worthwhile panel all on its own.
Panelist: Bob Bicknell, Senior Executive Producer, CBS Newspath
Maria Mercader, Talent Director, CBS News (will be replaced by Ramon Escobar)
Luis Giraldo, Digital Journalist, 48 Hours
Ina Fried, Axios
Producer: Bob Bicknell/Luis Giraldo
Location: Intercontinental New Orleans
