One of America’s leading academics and an award-winning journalist, Christina Bellantoni takes audiences behind the headlines to deliver shrewd analysis of the key political, policy and media issues impacting organizations today—as well as insight on potential outcomes of the upcoming 2024 elections.

As the former assistant managing editor for politics at the Los Angeles Times, Bellantoni brings a vast level of expertise to national political and election coverage. In addition to her status as a highly sought guest commentator on political broadcasts and high-profile role at the LA Times, she is the former editor-in-chief at Roll Call and former political editor at PBS NewsHour. She spent 20 years covering politics at every level and worked on both the left and the right.

Bellantoni is now a professor at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism where she leads the school's student newsroom. She teaches the next generation of journalists about inclusive and equitable reporting, the importance of diversity in media, and how they must stick with a "just the facts" approach to earn the trust of a media weary nation.

With stories from the White House and the halls of Congress, Bellantoni provides a thoughtful and thorough analysis of news and events from all sides of the political spectrum, including up-to-the-minute insights on policy and the evolution of modern political parties in a polarized era. With wide-ranging experience covering national politics and presidential campaigns as well as important issues like tax policy, immigration, health care and the federal budget, she shows audience s an exclusive insider’s view of what's happening in Washington and how it will impact the future of their business or organization.

Christina frequently appears on television and radio, including NPR, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher. She will author a chapter in Sean M. Theriault’s Disruption: The Senate During the Trump Era, entitled “The End of the Institutionalist, to be published in April 2024.
