The day's programming will kick off with a warm welcome and then we will jump right into an opening Keynote from Geeta Anand, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author who serves as Dean and professor at the UC Berkeley School of Journalism.
Learn about how we are committed to Funding the Future of Journalism in California. You'll hear about what today's Cal Press is all about, as we look back at where we've been and where we are headed as an organization.
Celebrate with us as one of our partner projects, the Journalism Education Collaborative, a statewide database which aims to connect journalism educators and students to the industry, shares exciting advancements in the project.
Our luncheon program will feature a panel discussion of former Cal Press Interns who are now working in the industry. Panelists:
Robin Epley is an opinion writer for The Sacramento Bee, with a focus on Sacramento County politics. She was born and raised in Sacramento, was a member of the Chico Enterprise-Record’s Pulitzer Prize-finalist team for coverage of the Camp Fire, and is a graduate of Chico State. Robin received a Cal Press Internship Grant in 2010.
Cresencio Rodriguez-Delgado is KVPR's News Director. Prior to joining the station's news department in 2022, he was a reporter for PBS NewsHour and The Fresno Bee. Cresencio received a Cal Press Internship Grant in 2017.
