Al MaciasCollectivo is happy to have KJZZ News Director Al Macias join us as a panelist for our January 20th event. Al has covered Arizona news for more than 30 years.

A decade earlier Macias was part of the management team that launched the KNXV newsroom in and oversaw its growth from a staff of twenty to more than sixty in less than a year. He previously helped manage television news stations KPNX (12 News) and KTVK (3TV).

During that time, Macias won two Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards for spot news coverage and public service programming.

Macias, a native Phoenician, is also heavily involved in community service. He is a founding board member of the Arizona Latino Media Association.
