November 1, 2019 – Gene Grant and The Line opinion panelists look at what made 2018 such a banner year for tourism in the Land of Enchantment, as a newly released report from the New Mexico Tourism Department shows visitors spent more money in the state than ever before. They look at what makes our state unique – from Albuquerque’s International Balloon Fiesta to the Deming Duck Races – and how crime statistics don’t seem to be deterring most visitors.

Line Panelists:
Michael Bird, Public Health Consultant
Tom Garrity, The Garrity Group PR
Julie Ann Grimm, editor, Santa Fe Reporter
Laura Sanchez-Rivét, attorney, Affirm, Inc.
