PBS NewsHour Executive Producer and SVP Sara Just with moderation by PBS NewsHour correspondent and Weekend Anchor Hari Sreenivasan will discuss the importance of diversity in all aspects of reporting. Just, which leads broadcast television's most credible nightly news broadcast according to an Erdos & Morgan 2014 study of opinion leaders, makes a conscious effort to bring diversity to both the news room and broadcast, in the topics discussed and reported on, the voices brought in to provide analysis and commentary, and in staffing both on camera and editorial talent.
