The annual event kicks off with a 9:30 a.m. panel with Sean Browning, chief photographer at KNBC TV; Adolfo Flores, reporter at BuzzFeed News; Brittany Rodgers, associate at Allied Integrated Marketing; and Whitney Tancred, personal publicist at Sunshine Sachs & Associates public relations. The second panel, scheduled for 10:50 a.m., will feature Feven Kay, reporter for KERO-TV in Bakersfield; Kelli King, Abril Preciado-Ramirez, graduating senior who interned with CBS News in New York City last summer; and Alex Vejar, sports writer for the Antelope Valley Press.
