Statement

I understand the issues facing broadcast journalists because I worked in the industry for almost three decades. I feel the impact of consolidation and my own inbox and post to my timelines show how attacks, particularly on black media, threaten our work. It’s my honor to assure changes inside and outside of the newsroom don’t present roadblocks diversity and inclusion in the editorial process. That means finding new ways to promote journalists, constantly offering impactful training to prepare members for ever changing mediums and supporting new journalists to ensure stories from a black perspective are not lost.
