NABJ's Response to Article ‘CBS Has a White Problem’

The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) has had recent and productive meetings with executives at CBS News regarding their diversity and inclusion efforts. 

Earlier this year, CBS News promoted Kim Godwin to executive vice president of news. NABJ recognizes her as the current highest-ranking black network news executive. NABJ applauds the network for the work being done at CBS News to further improve efforts around diversity and inclusion.  

We encourage the CBS Corporation to continue examining how evolving CBS News' diversity and inclusion practices can be utilized across the board including in its entertainment division. We also encourage the corporation to continue to work toward providing mechanisms that allow all voices who may have been impacted by alleged discriminatory practices to tell their stories.
NABJ looks forward to continuing to work with CBS News to explore additional methods to elevate diversity within the organization.
NABJ encourages all media companies to examine diversity, inclusion and equity practices and incorporate improvements now. NABJ is available to assist.
