Please join SPJ San Diego and four of the most plugged-in media personalities working the Chargers stadium story to discuss news coverage in San Diego, in L.A. and around the nation. They’ll discuss the team, dissect the reporting and answer your questions about the future of the Chargers. In February, one of our panelists, Kevin Acee, said if the Chargers leave San Diego, it would be “the biggest story in our city’s history.”

Not biggest sports story. Biggest story.

You don’t want to miss this lively discussion, which takes place about a week after San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s stadium task force is expected to unveil a financing proposal for a new stadium. Will it fly? Will the Chargers bolt? Has any coverage fallen short? We’ll ask the experts.

Our panel includes:
Kevin Acee, sports columnist, U-T San Diego
Marty Caswell, producer, The Mighty 1090
Scott Lewis, CEO/editor in chief, Voice of San Diego
Bernie Wilson, sports writer, The Associated Press.

You’re invited Wednesday, May 27 at 7 p.m. to U-T San Diego, 350 Camino de la Reina, San Diego CA 92108.

Admission is free, and light refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. The event will be moderated by SPJ San Diego president and U-T San Diego public engagement director Matthew T. Hall, who covered the Chargers’ stadium search for years.

Follow along and join in on Twitter that night using the hashtag #spjbolts.
