"When it comes to diversity, we're not there yet," says CNN's Bryan Monroe at the "Diversity in the Media" Forum at Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) on Monday, March 18.
The forum featured Monroe and other panelists discussing coverage of various communities and diversity staffing in the newsroom. The panelists also featured Fred Kalmbach, managing editor of The Advocate; Vicki Zimmerman, Region 1 news director for Raycom Media, parent company of WAFB; Chuck Bark, news director at WBRZ; and Josh Grimm, an assistant professor at the Manship School whose research focuses on representations of race in journalism, particularly portrayals of immigrants and immigration legislation.
Maxine Crump, executive director of Dialogue on Race Louisiana, served as moderator.
The forum was sponsored by the Baton Rouge Area Association of Black Journalists and the LSU Manship School of Journalism in partnership with BRCC.
