Newspaper Man Steve Terrell

1324 Steve Terrell

December 13, 2019 – Over the course of four decades, Steve Terrell’s byline became a familiar sight to generations of newspaper readers in Santa Fe. After cutting his teeth on music reviews for the Santa Fe Reporter, Terrell moved to the Albuquerque Journal and then to his home for more than 30 years, the Santa Fe New Mexican. For most of the past 20 years, he covered New Mexico politics with a combination of a quick wit, an eye for important details and a seemingly inexhaustible library of Roundhouse lore. In November, Terrell tapped out his last regular column for the paper. He joins NMiF producer Matt Grubs for a conversation about how politics and politicians have changed during his years in Santa Fe.

Our Land: At the Border

December 13, 2019 – Along the U.S./Mexico border in southern New Mexico, there isn’t a river, or landforms, to divide the two countries. For decades, there have been barbed wire fences or vehicle barriers. Now there is construction along the border, as the Trump administration grants contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Correspondent Laura Paskus visited the border in southern New Mexico to visit where 30-foot tall steel bollards have been installed and to see where the wall currently “ends.”
