Editors, news directors and reporters are frantically busy - but there are ways to catch their attention. Come meet our panel of media veterans who will share helpful tips:

  • They will walk you through how a local story lands on the cover of a news section.
  • They will let you know what elements they look for in terms of storytelling, visuals and voice.
  • They will highlight mistakes people often make in pitching story ideas - and how to avoid them.
  • They will suggest ways to humanize stories to make an issue come alive - and let you know what type of diverse stories they'd like to see more.
  • And they will be candid about what type of stories have little or zero chance of appearing on news pages or broadcasts.
  • Moreover, they will take sample pitches from the audience, giving you feedback right on the spot.


Who better to interview and moderate this panel than another journalist?
Anh Do, veteran journalist for such reputable publications as the LA Times, the Seattle Times, and the Orange County Register will moderate this lineup of speakers from print and broadcast platforms. Anh has spent her entire life in journalism. In 1978 her father founded, Nguoi Viet Daily (NVD), the most established and widely circulated Vietnamese-language newspaper in North America. Not only does NVD reach a quarter of a million viewers in Southern California but it also has a global following on almost every continent. This event is being hosted by Nguoi Viet Daily (NVD) at their headquarters in Little Saigon.
