Nation's top journalists meet in Miami for SEJ event
Traveling from across the country, board members of the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) took up the challenge of protecting Planet Earth with top city officials and academic leaders, including City of Miami Mayor Manny Diaz and University of Miami President Donna Shalala.
SEJ is the oldest and largest organization of journalists dedicated to improvements in the quality, accuracy and visibility of environment reporting. Their visit included a site tour with an eye toward bringing a future convention here. The weekend was topped off with a panel of TV journalists, including NBC News National Correspondent Kerry Sanders, WTVJ Investigative Reporter Jeff Burnside and WFOR Chief Investigative Reporter Michele Gillen, who all talked about the significance of environmental coverage. Miami is ready to welcome SEJ back!
