For the past couple of years Dr. Jim Paluzzi, Vice President and General Manager for KJZZ, K-BACH, SPOT 127 and Sun Sounds, has been working on a project to establish a KJZZ News Bureau in Mexico City for the purpose of covering increased relations between Mexico and Arizona with a focus on international business and trade developments. That goal is being finalized this June with a ceremonial signing between Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) and the Tecnoloigco De Monterrey in Mexico City.

On June 18th, a delegation of individuals including Dr. Chris Bustamante, President of Rio Salado College, and Todd Sanders, Chair of Friends of Public Radio Arizona (FPRAZ) along with Luis Ramirez, FPRAZ Board Member will accompany Arizona Governor Doug Ducey to Mexico City where he will bear witness to the ceremonial signing of the establishment of a collaboration and partnership between Tecnologico De Monterrey and Maricopa County Community College District/Rio Salado College to establish the KJZZ News and Press Bureau on the Mexico City campus of the Tecnologico De Monterrey.

The ceremonial signing and participation by Governor Ducey is being coordinated by FPRAZ Board Member Luis Ramirez. Additionally, Luis chairs the newly established KJZZ International Business Information Exchange and Advisory group which is charged with helping to keep KJZZ reporters abreast of business and economic developments that will lead to stories regarding international growth and the globalization of export and import markets impacting Arizona and Greater Metropolitan Phoenix.

We anticipate having the KJZZ Mexico City Bureau fully staffed and contributing by the fourth quarter this year.
