Celebrating Ysabel Duron

With Vicki Adame and Ysabel Duron
The NAHJ Bay Area professional chapter celebrated the life and career of one of our own, Ysabel Duron.

After more than 40 years in journalism, Ysabel is retiring. She ends her outstanding career as the weekend morning anchor for KRON in San Francisco, California.

Ysabel's career began in the 1970's and spans 7 different markets including Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles.

The party in Ysabel's honor was held at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts.

Ysabel is a cancer survivor who plans to devote her time to the non-profit organization she founded Latinas Contra Cancer.

I admire Ysabel not only for her leadership in leading the way for Latino journalists in the general market, but also for her courage in sharing her experience in battling cancer.

Congrats to Bay Area president Vicki Adame and her team for a wonderful event!

Un fuerte abrazo para Ysabel, an NAHJ lifetime and Hall of Fame member!!

Hugo Balta
NAHJ President
