Representation matters, as reflected from the countless positive reactions from those who see themselves depicted on screen. From Buzzfeed and Nerdist to Hyper RPG, hosts grow in number from LGBTQIA and minority backgrounds across various outlets. They bring fresh perspectives and open our minds to new point of views. Aspiring hosts can divulge in the wisdom of those who have worked smart and hard to carve out a career in hosting. Jessica Tseang (comic book historian, AMC's Secret History of Comics), Chris Lam (Buzzfeed personality, writer/host for GammaRay TV), Dani Fernandez (host for Nerdist, writer for Comedy Central), Markeia McCarty (host of DC Daily on DC Universe, Fangirling at Nerdist), Malik Forté (esports host, Crewham founder), and Arisce Wanzer (supermodel, host for LA Pride/Grindr's What the Flip) will give their success stories and tips to breaking into the industry. A Q&A will follow.
