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.
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.
