Detroit native and CBS 2 co-anchor, Pat Harvey will be attending

Los Angeles Sentinel’s, ‘Taste of Soul’ Festival in October.

Best known for her 20-year stint as a reporter with KCAL 9, Harvey will be one of many celebrity guests at the “largest street festival” in Los Angeles.  In addition to receiving the Joseph M. Quinn Lifetime Achievement Award, she has also garnered 19 Daytime Emmys and was the recipient of the NAACP ‘Ida B. Wells Award.’ Inducted into the National Association of Black Journalists Hall of Fame, at the start of this year, Harvey is recognized for her connection to the community as well as her investigative integrity.   

Covering stories such as the AIDS epidemic in East Africa and the voyage of a man from house painter to French gallery artist, Harvey’s advocacy and passion for reporting reigns true.

Harvey is co-chair of the Good News Foundation, an organization through which she and four other Los Angeles, newswomen impact the lives of at-risk youth; distributing annual scholarships to aspiring broadcast journalists. In recognition of her commitment to broadcast, October 30 was deemed (by the Los Angeles Country Board of Supervisors) ‘Pat Harvey Day’, in celebration of her 20th anniversary in 2009.  

Now a long way from her primary broadcast experience(s) in Saginaw,

Michigan, Harvey’s journey reflects dedication and vibrancy. Embodying tenacity and elegance, it’s no shock she’s made it this far.
