de la Frontera wins another Emmy!
bi-monthly, bilingual, bi-cultural 30-minute show, Stories
de la Frontera invites viewers to tune in to a dynamic
team of journalists, storytellers, and photographers
who have covered this international border region throughout
their careers. In addition to the millions of Latinos
already living in and around the border region, non
Latino viewers too will enjoy the captivating stories
about Latino culture.
This human interest television magazine,
covers issues, events, politics, people arts, culture,
Music, folklore, and features in and around the border
The 30-minute program opens with a dynamic, original
colorful, graphic and animation. It includes the signature
title Stories de la Frontera and an original Latin music
score. The show is hosted by award- winning journalist,
Laura Castañeda. She introduces 4 to 5 segments
produced by herself and a team of other award- winning
journalists and photojournalists. These issues may already
be newsworthy but have merely been scratched at the
surface by local news organizations or local publications.
The longer four- to seven- minute segments enable the
team to provide more in-depth interviews, compelling
visuals and offer more insight into these complex subjects.
Other segments are aimed at unveiling unique arts and
culture on both sides of the international border, from
galleries to folklore. Language is not a barrier in
telling visually compelling and interesting stories.
All stories are subtitled where needed.
