CNN’s Miguel Marquez, the Los Angeles Times’ Bettina Boxall, NBC4’s Mekahlo Medina, former Los Angeles Times Assistant Travel Editor Jane Engle and the Long Beach Press Telegram’s Phillip Zonkel will be the panelists at Out in the Newsroom, a look at workplace issues gay and lesbian journalists face today. I’ll be moderating the event, which will be held on Saturday, March 2 at 11 a.m. at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood.
The Los Angeles Press Club and the Los Angeles chapter of the National Gay and Lesbian Journalists Assn. Are co-sponsors.
While panelists will discuss the evolution being out in the newsroom — and whether it is an issue or non-issue — they also will talk about covering gay and lesbian issues as public opinion shifts in a relatively quick period of time.
