SEPTEMBER HOT TOPIC

The Women of the Capitol Press Corps

The next legislative session is kicking off with committee meetings this month. How do women reporters navigate the halls of power in the Capitol to get the story? What are their views on the people and issues who will decide the laws that are heard and passed in the legislature?

Please join fellow Leaguers and three of our esteemed female members of the Florida Capitol Press Corps next month for a spirited panel covering the topics that matter most to our members. These reporters represent decades of experience covering state capitol issues for 4 major media outlets.

Panel Participants include:

Alexandra Glorioso, Florida Policy Reporter, Politico

Dara Kam, Senior Reporter, News Service of Florida

Elizabeth Koh, Staff Writer, Tampa Bay Times/Miami Herald Bureau
