Members of the Religion News Association board unanimously approved the temporary appointment of CBS 60 Minutes' Dina Zingaro to the board in a recent meeting. She replaces her CBS colleague Liz Kineke, who recently resigned due to burgeoning work commitments.

“Since I joined RNA in 2015, the association has surrounded me with a family of fellow journalists whom I admire and whose body of work teaches and inspires me," Zingaro said. "It’s an honor to help lead RNA forward as a member of the board at a time when religious literacy continues to be an essential element of society’s fabric.”

Zingaro joined the CBS staff in 2013, and is now an associate producer for 60 Minutes. She has won numerous honors for her work, including awards from RNA and from the Religion Communicators Council. She was named a Frank 5 Fellow in 2018 and a Handa Fellow in Interreligious Communication in 2015. Zingaro is a graduate of Swarthmore College, where she earned a Bachelor's degree with High Honors in Religion and English literature.

"We are pleased to report that Dina Zingaro has joined the RNA board. She has for a number of years helped to plan our conferences, including her moderation of last year's unforgettable discussion about #MeToo in Sacred Places. She continues her involvement in conference planning and in membership recruiting. As an associate producer at CBS' 60 Minutes, she also provides a valuable voice and perspective from broadcast journalism," said RNA President Peter Smith.

Members will vote on Zingaro's election to a full, three-year term at the member meeting in Las Vegas, during RNA's 70th Annual Conference Sept. 19–21, 2019.
