Elena Romero, assistant chair, Marketing Communications, has received her first New York Emmy nomination for Best Public Affairs Program (Series) as part of the LATiNAS team at CUNY TV. The monthly magazine-style news show showcases Latinas from all walks of life. She’s been a correspondent and producer with the show since its inception in 2019.
Romero also recently won her third Telly—a Silver Award, the organization’s highest achievement—for “LATiNAS: Best of Season 3″ in the Television: Diversity and Inclusion category. She’s won in previous years for her work on LATiNAS for a profile of a Latinx Muslim family in season one and for an entire season of on-air reporting done during the pandemic.
Starting Aug. 11, Romero will co-host a six-part special on LATiNAS titled “The Hip Hop Subway: The L Line,” which looks at hip hop from a Latino perspective through photography, publishing, film, MCing, deejaying, dance, graffiti and art, and activism. Romero, a respected hip hop fashion journalist, author, and expert, will co-host the series with Tuffy Questell, a former host of Video Music Box.
