Sandra Lilley started her career as a general assignment  reporter for Telemundo NY (WNJU-TV), eventually  becoming News Director.  She won a New York  Emmy as Executive Producer of the WNJU-TV  special, “Embargo Contra Cuba,” looking at different  sides of the embargo debate.  

 She has also been a Dayside Managing Editor for  MSNBC and a Planning Editor for the NBC News  Domestic Desk. She was the former Managing Editor and Political Reporter at NBCLatino.com.

 Adrian Carrasquillo is the editor of Latino coverage at BuzzFeed, the social news and  entertainment company. More information will  be forthcoming on this effort but the idea is to  tell important stories on a powerful national  platform that aren’t being told without  pandering to the audience or segregating the  content. Latino is mainstream and Latino is  American and it’s about time the media  reflected that. He also is a reporter covering  immigration, race and culture. Previously, he  helped launch NBC Latino at NBC News, where  he managed social media and was a reporter.  He loves his cat Patches who just turned 16 years old. Twitter:@RealAdrianC
