FilAms In The Newsroom

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

There's a good article down at the Asian Journal about FilAms and other Asian Americans in the newsroom:

"These are just a few faces that look like us, disseminating the news," said Winston Emano, a FilAm public relations executive who organized an event last year at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) featuring Dador and Quiban about their experience on the news.

Since Taiwanese-American Connie Chung broke the mold during the 1980’s when she achieved prominence by becoming the first Asian American nightly news anchor for a mainstream broadcast news network, more Asians are following her footstep.

Asians and FilAms are reaping the benefits from Chung’s broadcast success.
Yeah - I always liked Connie even if she does seem a little wacko.
