George is a broadcast reporter for NBC Bay Area in California. During his term as vice president, George launched AASBJ to support Asian American student broadcast journalists, AASMBJ to help small- and mid-market broadcast journos and the Asian American Radio Group. He has mentored countless Asian American students and has a constant waiting list to critique stand-up tapes for early-career journalists and students.
