Anchorperson Mendonsa to address ‘Breakfast Club’

News 10 anchor and California State University, Sacramento alumna Cristina Mendonsa will talk about “An Eighteen-Year Journey from Sac State to News Ten” at the next installment of the Breakfast Club Speakers Series, hosted by the CSUS Alumni Association. Mendonsa will speak at 7:30 a.m., Tuesday, May 11 in the Alumni Center on campus.

The free events, which include breakfast, feature a range of guests speaking on hot topics in the Sacramento region in a low-key, off-the-record format that allows audience interaction.

For the last six years Mendonsa has anchored the KXTV’s 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts. She has received numerous professional honors including two Emmy Awards – including one for a consumer protection series on identity theft. She was awarded three Best of Gannett awards for breaking and investigative journalism and was part of the team that earned a national Murrow Award for coverage of the papal visit to Denver.

She has been nominated for Emmy awards in both anchoring and producing and received the Hispanic Salute award from the Bureau of Land Management for her focus on Latino issues. Her 1996 series on wilderness survival earned recognition from the U.S. Congress. She attended Metro College in Denver and has a degree in government and journalism from CSUS.

Her talk is sponsored by the Communications Chapter of the CSUS Alumni Association. Seating is limited. For reservations or additional information, contact the Alumni Association at (916) 278-6295.
