This year’s Student Interactive Session will tackle the  thorny issue of racial disparities and depictions in both the old and new  media. What progress, if any, has been made in diversifying newsrooms and  anchor chairs locally and nationally? Has the instantaneousness of new media  helped or just blurred the picture even further? Join a stellar panel of  experts including OPB President, Steve Bass and KPTV reporter, Tony Martinez for  a lively discussion.
