Please join us this Saturday, March 18 for a conversation with LA Times political reporter Kurtis Lee and political writer Seema Mehta on “Media in the Age of Trump.” The meeting will take place at the SAG-AFTRA building at 11 a.m.
Prior to joining the newspaper in August 2014, Lee worked for three years at the Denver Post and covered state and national politics. He’s also reported from the scenes of destructive wildfires and mass shootings and was a member of the Post staff that won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news coverage of the Aurora theater shooting. He’s a Colorado native and a graduate of Temple University.
Mehta has covered the 2016, 2012 and 2008 presidential campaigns, as well as gubernatorial, Senate and mayoral races. A graduate of Syracuse University, the East Coast native swore when she joined The Times in 1998 that she would only spend a few years on the Left Coast. Many years, a husband, a house and a few cats later, Mehta can’t imagine living somewhere she couldn’t golf year-round.
