July 27, 2018 – The UNM Board of Regents voted last week to eliminate four sports to address financial issues in the Athletics Department. The cuts included men’s soccer, men’s and women’s skiing and women’s beach volleyball. The Athletics Department also plans to reduce the rosters of several additional sports. 

Host Gene Grant and this week’s Line panelists discuss reactions to the cuts and the ongoing financial troubles in the Athletics Department.

The Line: Female Professors Sue Over Unequal Pay

June 15, 2018 – Local media reported this week that at least two female UNM professors are suing the university over unequal pay. In 2015, a report found that female professors were paid less than men although UNM leadership argued that the data didn’t tell the whole story. This week host Gene Grant and our Line opinion panelists discuss this new development and pay equity in New Mexico.
