Diversity and representation go hand in hand, at least that’s how XiXi Yang, an entertainment journalist and the founder of next generation content powerhouse XYZ Media describes the relationship. As the first Asian-American female journalist to anchor Live From the Red Carpet solo for the Oscars and the Grammys, XiXi Yang broke barriers for minority women in media.
As the first anchor to bring live coverage of some of the most prestigious events in Hollywood to millions of viewers around the world, XiXi Yang witnessed firsthand the tremendous impact of creating entertainment news for a global audience. “Entertainment is the most powerful content in the world,” Yang says. “Having a global perspective in our coverage of entertainment news and pop culture stories is vital for us to understand our own identity, the identity of people we interact with, how our world works, and how we are all interconnected.”
