The Black History Month collaboration focused on gathering African American business, professional, arts and community organization leaders who are experts in their respective fields, both for networking and being a resource to the news station.
For over 15 years, CBS News Bay Area has collaborated with local businesses, non-profits, and community leaders for after-work receptions at our studios that celebrate the diversity of the Bay Area. These gatherings bring together groups of influencers to meet the CBS staff and on-air talent, and learn about community stories.
