(Bob) Hagerty, a Wall Street Journal reporter who is a former managing editor of the Asian Wall Street Journal, and former bureau chief of the International Herald Tribune and Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong, London, Brussels, Paris and Atlanta; Jonathan Kersting, associate publisher and editor of the Pittsburgh Technology Council's TEQ news magazine; and Dennis Roddy, a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette staff reporter assigned to covering the G-20.
