MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/15/13 -- Underscoring its commitment to becoming an indispensible annual destination for Hispanic journalists, Hispanicize 2013 (#Hispz13) today unveiled the speakers line up and topics for the 20 sessions of its inaugural Hispanic Journalist Showcase.
The Who's Who of Hispanic journalists, commentators and leaders speaking at the event include CNN "Starting Point" anchor Soledad O'Brien; Univision America personality and radio talk show host Fernando Espuelas; nationally known political pundits Leslie Sanchez and Maria Cardona; NBC Latino Executive Editor Chris Peña; Web Journalist Chat Creator (#WJChat) and USC Professor Robert Hernandez; serial entrepreneur, author and former columnist Kathy Cano-Murillo of Crafty Chica; TV personality and Fox News Latino contributor Rick Sanchez and Multimedia journalist and editor and publisher of Media Moves, Veronica Villafañe, among many others.
"This showcase is razor-focused on the speakers, topics and trends that most impact the careers of today's Hispanic journalists," said Manny Ruiz, founder of Hispanicize 2013 and himself a former print reporter. "This marks a new chapter for the Hispanicize event as we transform from a place where media solely come to cover news and celebrities to one that also equips journalists with high impactful content by journalists for journalists. Every day is jam-packed with journalist content and of course journalists can choose to attend ANY portion of the event sessions they want."
