As you know, we’ve been following Ana Teresa Fernandez’s work for awhile. Today, she’s on KQED’s Forum at 10:30 a.m. to talk about her performances on and paintings about the border. You can see her show “Foreign Bodies” at the Wendi Norris Gallery at 161 Jessie St. 

Earlier on the program at 10 a.m., Michael Krasny will talk with another painter, Judith Belzer about her latest series, “Paths of Desire. ”

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.
