LGBT Journo Panel Will Address Being ‘Out in the Newsroom’

Our friend Phillip Zonkel has let us know about a Saturday March 2 event that he will be taking part in. Zonkel, along with CNN’s Miguel Marquez, LA Times reporter Bettina Boxall, NBC LA’s Mekahlo Medina and LAT assistant travel editor Jane Engle will talk about what it’s like to be an openly gay reporter.

“Out in the Newsroom: A Look at LGBT Coverage and Careers in Journalism” is being sponsored by the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) and Los Angeles Press Club. It will take place at the latter organization’s 4773 Hollywood Blvd. HQ from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is to be moderated by Variety political editor Ted Johnson. The suggested donation is $5.
