Laura Castañeda is an award wining cross-border journalist, film maker, video producer and faculty member in the San Diego area.

She was hired as a reporter at the ABC stations in Tucson, Ariz., and later San Diego, where she covered the U.S./Mexico border, and law enforcement beats.

( add a few You tube links with my stories from San Diego Insider and KGTV, KGUN, and Stories de la Frontera.)

In 2005, she launched her own Magazine show called, Stories de la Frontera. She assembled a team of border reporters, photographers, and documentary filmmakers to tell original, compelling stories on both sides of the international border. The show won two Emmy Awards for Best Magazine Show and aired on KPBS-TV, with screenings in Tucson, Ariz., Chicago, and Riverside, Calif.
