New Mexico was in the national spotlight a lot this year. What are the story threads journalists followed? Local reporters join us in the studio to talk about topics like: the Albuquerque Police Department shootings, the immigration center in Artesia, transparency, the Roswell school shooting and mental health.
On location at a film shoot in the Lincoln National Forest, KUNM's Rita Daniels caught up with independent filmmaker Jacob Roebuck. The self-described social conservative moved to Roswell from Los Angeles four years ago and has benefited from the state's film production tax credit.
Two students have been hospitalized after a gunman opened fire at a New Mexico middle school Tuesday morning.
The shooting occurred at a Roswell Middle School in eastern New Mexico when students gathered in the gym to get out of the weather and a 12-year-old suspect brought what's presumed to be a shotgun to school.
"This individual opened fire on the audience that was in the gym," Said New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez. "At this time we can confirm that two students were injured, a boy and a girl, as well as a school staff member."
