Description
Program Description
"Mexican Immigration. Operation Gatekeeper. Bilingual Eduation. Props 187 & 209. Latino Politics. Tijuana Drug Cartels. Farm Labor. Bi-national Pollution? "These are some of the most pressing social issues of our day; and they all play out in one of the most populated border regions of the United States: San Diego-Tijuana. "KPBS -the public broadcast service in San Diego- has chronicled these stories for years? but now KPBS radio is proving to be a valuable resource for radio audiences around the country and around the world. "KPBS Radio dedicates beat reporter Carrie Kahn to full-time coverage of Mexico and the border. In 1998, Carrie produced some 50 feature stories and 180 spot news stories documenting the voices and changes in this complex region. KPBS is among the few news outlets in Southern California to recognize the value of including Mexico in defining the geography of local news. "Carrie's dedication and expertise in border coverage has been recognized in many ways. National Public Radio and the statewide California Report frequently have called on her for stories. (In 1998, she filed 55 NPR reports ? and spent two months on several high profile NPR assignments.) She has twice won the $500 Sol Price Prize for Responsible Journalism awarded by the San Diego chapter of SPJ. In addition to winning many other awards, Carrie is frequently called upon to lecture or discuss border issues and bi-national journalism. Her work has been cited for fairness and balance by the Poynter Institute of Media Studies. And most recently, the international radio news magazine, The World, has invited Carrie to be a contributor on immigration matters. "This tape is but a glimpse of Carrie Kahn's work ? but a good sample of her enterprising approach, her sensitivity to her subjects, and her ability to rise above polarizing rhetoric and viewpoints."--1998 Peabody Awards entry form.
