A Conversation with KPCC reporter Adolfo Guzman-Lopez

Wednesday, Nov 12, 2014 - 5:00pm to Thursday, Oct 16, 2014 - 7:00pm

It's all true. How being a local reporter can be the best foreign correspondent job, ever!

Rubber bullets coming out of LAPD guns, corrupt politicians yelling profanities, Baby Jesus-Fixers, and a Dreamer who imagines herself a salmon when she's asleep. Adolfo Guzman-Lopez could not have imagined these would be the true-life stories he'd report on when he took his first journalism job in 1996.

Guzman-Lopez will talk about these and other stories, and how he's dodged the guillotine of the multi-platform journalism revolution (so far). Whether you're interested in journalism, Southern California history, writing, or Latino issues, his informal talk will inform, engage, and make you laugh.


Adolfo Guzman-Lopez has been a reporter at NPR-affiliate KPCC 89.3FM since 2000. He's reported on education, politics, arts, and other topics. Currently he's the station's higher education and public schools reporter. He's been awarded the LA Press Club's "Radio Journalist of the Year" and other journalism honors. He was born in Mexico City and grew up in Tijuana and San Diego and currently lives in Long Beach.
