For the past two weeks, students interested in radio, television and print news immersed themselves in a two-week journalism program in San Diego.
The California Chicano News Media Association created the annual event, and KPBS, SDSU, NBC 7/39-TV, Point Loma Nazarene University, The San Diego Union-Tribune and the Riverside Press-Enterprise provided training for the aspiring journalists
This journalism workshop receives competitive applications and typically accepts 22 students, who attend for free. The students reside in dorms at a local campus and spend two weeks training and producing news in their preferred sequence (print, television or radio).
KPBS has provided the radio training for this workshop for eight years, two students per year.
