Ask a Reporter

Being an L.A. Times journalist means going to interesting places, talking to fascinating people and seeing things that most people only ever read about. Many of those experiences are captured in the articles, videos and images we publish online and in print, but there’s always more to the story.

Our new live event series, “Ask a Reporter,” is your chance to find out about the experiences journalists have that don’t make it into their work.

Each week, an L.A. Times reporter, photographer, columnist or videographer will answer your questions on our live video show.

Visit our Twitter profile or our Facebook page to share your questions ahead of time and to sign up to receive an alert when the video begins.

Here are the upcoming guests and topics for “Ask a Reporter.”

On Thursday, April 29 at 6 p.m. Times journalists, Sandy Banks, Howard Blume, Paloma Esquivel and Sonja Sharp will discuss school reopenings in California and their coverage of education during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Wednesday, Mar. 24, at 6 p.m. Times journalists Teresa Watanabe, Anh Do, Ada Tseng and special guest George Takei will discussed the recent rise in anti-Asian hate crimes in the U.S. They talked about the history of racist policies in California, how they’ve coped with the recent violence and shooting in Atlanta and ways to support the Asian community in this time.
