Find Your Voice with Mo Rocca and More at National Convention!

NLGJA’s National Convention will be held September 7-10 at the Loews Hotel Philadelphia, and the soon-to-be-announced schedule is brimming with excellent workshops and speakers!

Among them is a workshop featuring Mo Rocca, who has been a correspondent on CBS Sunday Morning for over a decade. Rocca’s role on the show is akin to a columnist. In this panel he will talk about bringing his perspective and voice to feature reporting on arts and culture – and how to make a profile of someone into more than just a Wikipedia entry on that person’s life. The panel will be moderated by CBS Sunday Morning Executive Producer Rand Morrison.
