Celebrating the CCNMA: Latino Journalists of California and National Association of Hispanic Journalists partnership with my TV media colleagues at the CCNMA and NAHJ banquet. Couldn’t be possible without friends like Mekahlo. These organizations are dedicated to the recognition and advancement of Hispanics in the news industry, and the promotion of diversity in news media. They achieve this through encouragement, scholarships, and many educational programs for Latinos wanting to pursue careers in journalism. It was great to be among friends to share this night, and many well deserved colleagues earned awards!
