Harold Hayes, a former reporter at KDKA-TV, will moderate the panel.
During the summit, journalists will discuss media coverage of minority communities, best practices, challenges, missteps, etc. PBMF also will release preliminary results of its media diversity study.
The free event is open to the public. RSVP by Sept. 20.
