Fronteras Desk Senior Editor Michel Marizco is an award-winning investigative reporter. His reporting from the U.S.-Mexico border has revealed government wrong-doings and led to lengthy prison sentences for predators targeting vulnerable populations in Southern Arizona.

In 2016, he received The Associated Press Television-Radio Association’s award for investigative reporting. Previously, his work earned recognition with a National Headliners Award and a Maria Moors Cabot Prize.

In 2010, he helped launch the KJZZ local journalism center, The Fronteras: Changing America Desk and opened the station’s Tucson bureau. He returned in 2016 as the Fronteras Desk’s Senior Editor to lead a team of highly-skilled reporters. His work now focuses on transnational trafficking syndicates, immigration, federal law enforcement and those weird, wild stories that make the U.S.-Mexico border such an inherently fascinating region.
