NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Nationally known journalists are getting set to join high school journalism students from around the nation for an event at Loyola University in New Orleans.

Called "JCamp," the sessions are conducted by the Asian American Journalists Association. They begin on Tuesday and run through June 24.

Loyola describes the program as a multicultural journalism exercise that includes interactive workshops, training and field trips.

Guest speakers include Hoda Kotb, a former WWL TV news anchor who now co-hosts NBC's Today show; and Byron Pitts, national correspondent for CBS.

The program is planned in conjunction with the National Association of Black Journalists' convention, which begins Wednesday in New Orleans.
