Angelenos! Where U at?
The Asian American Journalists Association will host its 21st Annual AAJA National Convention at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles from August 4 to 7. We will have the pleasure of speaking on two panels on Thursday, August 5 as part of the “Diversifying Your Coverage” series with some of our favorite and most esteemed colleagues. Please join us if you can!

The Internet offers a mixed bag of voices, but the success of ethnic outlets is still developing. Experts and experimenters alike gather to talk tips, hurdles and highlights of how to make diversity in new media work for you and your readers.
“A Hyphenated World”

Journalists, every day, are challenged to report on a diverse and multicultural world. This panel discussion shines a light on some of the stereotypes most prevalent in media today — with a focus on Asian-Americans in Hollywood – and offers insight into covering the subtleties of a world rich in nuances and culture.

Occupation: Local news anchor
Why She’s a Babe: In 2003, Cho, who’s Koreish (half-Korean, half-Jewish), was named by People as one of its 50 Most Beautiful People. She’s inspired a website called Liz Cho Is Awesome, which deemed her “the next Katie Couric, Jane Pauly, and Joan Lundon all rolled into one.” And Asylum recently counted the WABC news anchor among its “Top 19 Hottest Newscasters in America.” Us? We love her strong features, particularly that long face and those sculpted cheekbones, which kinda remind us of Cher circa Mermaids (i.e. masculine but pretty, before all of the wack plastic surgery). We also like that this Korean surgeon’s daughter keeps it classy in her off-hours, and despite being universally hailed as a babe, she’s never snapped flaunting her assets all over the place like so many other of her peers.
Occupation: Tabloid editor
Why She’s a Babe: Janice Min has this kind of sweet Michelle Kwan-all-growed-up vibe. And she’s got hot, skinny legs that she isn’t afraid to show off. But mostly, we love her because she’s entertained us through countless plane rides and PMS-cycles for the last 6 years as editor-in-chief of the best print-tabloid on the market, Us Weekly, a post she announced she’s stepping down from this week. Will her successor be able to delude us into thinking celebrities are “just like us”? We’re more than a little dubious. Hopefully he won’t fuck with the formula–i.e. packing the mag with pictures, leaving the sad human interest stories to People–or Us will soon be dead to us.
This People magazine hit newsstands last Friday, promising an “intimate look” at would-be First Family, the McCains:
