We hope you had a safe and enjoyable 4th of July!
To keep you informed about the businesses that support KTAL, we are introducing "KTAL Sponsors" to the newsletter. Hubbard's Music 'n' More is one of KTAL's earliest backers and are featured this issue!
The Sizzling Summer Fund Drive is coming to KTAL. Because of COVID-19 pandemic, we've had to cancel the very successful Roadrunner Revue, so we know you will help us with your generous donations during the fund drive. Stay tuned! It will be on the air August 1 through 8!
KTAL Candidate Forums
Between August 26 and October 28, KTAL will host candidate forums for all contested elections that Doña Ana County voters will see on their November 3rd general election ballots (except the Biden-Trump race). From the County Treasurer on August 26 to the U.S. Senate and 2nd District U.S. Congresswoman on October 28.
Walter Rubel and Peter Goodman will interview the candidates – by phone or in-person, depending on pandemic developments – mostly as part of their “Speak Up, Las Cruces!” show (Wednesday, 8-10 a.m.), but with some forums scheduled for Friday mornings. You can see the schedule here.
Dru Hubbard was one of KTAL’s earliest underwriters. To learn more click here.
Please, let our underwriters know that you heard about them on KTAL!
