The Line: Journalists Make Predictions About Big Stories To Watch in 2019

Top Stories 2018

January 4, 2019 – 2019 will be a pivotal year for New Mexico. For starters, we have a new Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham. And, we’re also looking at more than a billion dollars in new money in the state coffers. The upcoming 60-day legislative session will no doubt dominate the headlines early on in 2019, but there are plenty of other important stories to pay attention to as well. Host Gene Grant and a special Line panel of all working journalists lay out some predictions for the New Year, and preview some of the issues and people that will dominate their work in the year to come.

Gustavo Arellano Revisited: Journalism With No Apologies

Arellano

December 28, 2018 – Journalist Gustavo Arellano is no stranger to controversy and has stirred up emotions by writing about Southern California’s painful history with people of color. He also has written pieces challenging the homophobia and racism within the Latino community. The creator of the formerly syndicated column “¡Ask a Mexican!” is on a new mission: defending free speech and forcing readers to get out of their comfort zone, even if that means engaging with people with whom you disagree.

Arellano visited Albuquerque earlier this year and stopped by for an in-depth discussion with correspondent Russell Contreras.
