THAT’S A WRAP

And just like that, we have officially wrapped my third full season as host of Horizonte!
Thank you to everyone who has supported Horizonte by watching it live and online.
Thank you to everyone who has stopped me in person or sent a note to say how much you are enjoying the wide-ranging topics we’re covering, the terrific guests we’re featuring, and the in-depth conversations we’re having.
This season we’ve covered issues like the rising number of Hispanics developing melanoma (the deadliest form of skin cancer). We discussed the status of undocumented students who are attending school in what’s being called a post DACA period, and the emotional toll the uncertainty is having on DACA recipients and those who are DACA eligible. We talked about colorism and how it impacts Latinos most both inside and outside our communities. We talked about why Latinos have the highest rates of long COVID and what’s being done to address it. Plus, we laughed and went deep with the iconic, legendary entertainer @theritamoreno about the discrimination she faced in Hollywood, her ongoing film work at 92 years young! And what accomplishments she’s most proud of.

I’m having such a great time hosting this trailblazing show on @arizonapbs and I have to give props and thanks to our team: Our incredible producer @mikeeloy. He is one of the hardest working people in the business and I love collaborating with him. Thank you to our awesome directors Gregg and @graphicsguyaz. Big shoutout to our student floor crew and our hard-working interns (I’m looking at you @rox_of_the_rose!) and to the social media and Conexión team (you’re fabulous @christine_klassen9 ) for helping me and our show shine online, and in print.
Horizonte is a weekly series that examines topics and issues of particular interest to Arizona’s Hispanic community. It airs live Saturdays at 6pm on Arizona PBS, channel 8 and livestreams on azpbs.org/horizonte.
We will be back in the fall with NEW episodes. But in the meantime, catch up on any episodes you missed online at azpbs.org/horizonte (tap Linktree in my bio) and on the PBS app.
