Nevada Week | Diversity in Local Journalism
SEASON 3: EPISODE 01| Airdate: 7/17/2020
Local newsrooms are built to bring their community's stories to light. Yet, some newsrooms don't reflect their cities when it comes to diversity in hiring. In this discussion with local journalists and community activists, we explore the importance of having newsrooms reflect the places they serve. Plus, what Southern Nevadan newsrooms can do to improve hiring practices.
