Emmy award-winning CNN national correspondent Omar Jimenez has reported in areas where academic expertise shapes national and international news stories—from gun violence and inequality to politics and breaking news. He helped lead CNN’s coverage of numerous high-profile stories including the murder of George Floyd, the first major COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, the sudden death of Kobe Bryant, and more.

In this session, Jimenez will discuss the role of academic expertise in reporting stories of international and national interest at a major broadcast operation.
