Bryce Dix

Bryce Dix has been listening to public radio all of his life. Whether it be a podcast (This American Life, of course), a news magazine, or a local talk show, you can count on Bryce to always have his headphones on. 

He got his start in broadcasting as a general assignment news reporter and NPR Weekend Edition news host at New Mexico’s largest NPR affiliate station, KUNM-FM in Albuquerque, New Mexico. During his time, he won several awards for his reporting & podcasting work at the station.

From there, Bryce went to New Mexico PBS where he produced television segments for New Mexico In Focus and served as a producer/editor of Growing Forward, an award-winning podcast about the cannabis industry in New Mexico. 

News doesn’t occupy ALL of his time, however. Bryce likes to run and shoot film photography whenever he gets the chance.

The fall season is a time of pride for many New Mexicans – hot air balloons fill the early morning skies, the smell of green chile slowly turning in roasters is on every corner, and many travel from all sorts of places to see the state’s beautiful fall colors. 

But, this year has shown the climate is changing. Fast. And that fall landscape we are so used to seeing? It’s changing too.

90 New Mexican public officials are now urging Congress to step up and establish a path to citizenship for undocumented workers.

There's no doubt that any fire in our forests can be a cause for concern, especially during a drought. But the truth is, prescribed burns have played a major role in managing the health of forest ecosystems for a very long time. However, the very agency that prescribes these burns has decided to suddenly limit fire management in our forests– including prescribed burns.
