2020 has been nonstop — with journalists across all beats covering two very important topics: a global pandemic, and nationwide protests over racial inequality spurred by police killings. Come listen to a panel of reporters from national outlets talk about their recent experiences, and how they've navigated reporting amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Panelists include: Brittny Mejia, of the Los Angeles Times; Sonali Kohli, of the Los Angeles Times; Doha Madani, of NBC News; and Philip Lewis, of HuffPost. Moderated by Saba Hamedy, CNN national news editor and USC Annenberg adjunct journalism professor.
