Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.

  1. Thanks for posting this story! To all Mission Loc@l readers, please come by even if for just a drink or a pupusa… and bring the kids (I always do, every week). And we play music from all over the world, not just salsa (sometimes its even live music).

    Also, this is a fundraiser for a different organization each week. You can search for “Lengua en Salsa” on Facebook to find out about our complete schedule of fundraisers (and contact us about organizing your own).
