The last time I saw Rebecca Aguilar in person, it was early October of 2007. We were both at the National Association of Hispanic Journalists' Noche de Triunfos awards banquet in Washington, D.C. I was presenting an award and she was receiving one -- NAHJ Broadcast Journalist of the Year for her work at the Fox affiliate in Dallas, Texas. Two weeks later, that same station suspended the Broadcast Journalist of the Year after people began talking about her story on an elderly business owner who shot and killed two alleged burglars in the space of three weeks.
It's a whole digital new world out there. Working for the big guys, having costly equipment, printing presses or TV stations are no longer the only option.
Keep it up. we can all do it!!
