Michel Marizco photoMichel Marizco serves as KJZZ's Fronteras: the Changing America Desk Senior Field Correspondent in Tucson, AZ. 

His work 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.

Marizco is a veteran journalist who has reported along the Southwest border for the past decade, focusing on stories in Arizona and Sonora.

Before joining the Fronteras Desk, he produced stories in the field for CNN Madrid, the BBC, 60 Minutes Australia and the CBC.

Marizco is a contributing author on Shared Responsibility: U.S.-Mexico Policy Options for Confronting Organized Crime and an occasional writer at High Country News.

In his spare time, Marizco works with investigative reporters and editors and the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, assisting in the ongoing investigations of journalist killings in Mexico.
