As KRWG-FM’s Operations Manager and the host of KRWG-TV’s “Fronteras-A Changing America,” Robert has a strong passion for radio and music which shows through his past 11 years in broadcast radio and through the Las Cruces Mariachi Conservatory. He has breathed new life in to a long-served tradition in our community, the Las Cruces International Mariachi Conference where he serves as executive director.
