The Society of Professional Journalists, in collaboration with the Asian American Journalists Association, held its second free journalism career consultation workshop on Sept. 17 at Hawaii Public Radio Atherton Studio.

Jason Ubay, managing editor of Hawaii Business magazine, moderated the panel which also included Kevin Bumgarner, editor of Pacific Business News; Mark Platte, news director of Hawaii News Now; and Malia Zimmerman, editor of The speakers shared their insights on moving from print to broadcast, moving to Hawaii, starting a website and how news develops.
