Meet Leslie Rangel, Co-Author of "Journalists Break News, Don't Let it Break You" at NICAR 2024

By: Manon Media Editorial Team

Leslie Rangel, a TV breaking news anchor in Texas and The News Yogi, is one-half of the author team with Dr. Kate West, a journalism professor at UT Austin, of their powerful new book Journalists Break News, Don't Let it Break You. Normalizing Mental Wellness in News. The book breaks down the problems of burnout and stress AND even includes several interviews with reporters who detail graphic stories of watching executions, how trauma caused their burnout and much more. All of these stories are on the record, from other Texas journalists to a reporter from Sports Illustrated and ProPublica.

Starting tomorrow and throughout this weekend, Leslie will be attending NICAR 2024, the annual data journalism conference organized by Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), in Baltimore, Maryland. If you are also a journalist and attending the conference, be sure to be on the lookout for Leslie and introduce yourself.

Flyers about the book will be available at the conference with a QR code so you can place your order through the publisher right on the spot. Or you can also purchase the book online here.
