Lunch & Learn with the League. "Vulture Capitalists, News Geeks & Stories Told" Guest Speaker: Joe Livernols a well known local journalist. Joe will provide a synopsis of the state of local journalism, revealing how important issues about our area are reported in the current political, social and economic climate.
Joe worked for a couple of local weeklies, including the Carmel Pine Cone, before joining the Monterey Peninsula/County Herald where for about 30 years he went from copy editor, reporter, bureau chief, columnist, agitator, headache collector and administrator before falling on his sword in 2010.
Joe then joined other veteran local reporters who believed the region needed a new journalistic vision, to found Voices of Monterey Bay (VOMB) in 2017. This nonprofit, bilingual online news operation serves the Central Coast, Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties, providing a central location for people who have been ignored by traditional media to express themselves or to report news from their neighborhoods.
