Alicia Trujillo

Alicia MexicoHI I am Alicia. I am new to the WHYS team having starting full time on the programme in October. Some of you might have seen me on the blog because I was part of the Mexico team in April when we did the programmes about Swine flu from Mexico City.

I have worked for the BBC for 15 years, most recently I have been working on The World Today, but before covered British Politics and spent six months in the BBC Washington bureau.

What do I read to keep in touch with the news, I always check the BBC Website, the Economist, Times online, The Guardian and as I grew up in Colombia one of the things I never miss, is looking at El Tiempo’s website to see what is happening back home.

    Hi Alicia,
    Welcome to the BBC Worldhaveyoursay Wonderland. The beauty of it is that you never know how things can turn out on the blog or on the show. There are frequently surprising and witty remarks.

    Hello Alicia
    Nice to meet you. The mother-in-law of my son is Columbian and she was happy to have escaped, so I’m happy for you as well. Apart from that, judjing from your photo, and please don’t take offence, you don’t look as though you’ve been anywhere for 15 years. Anyway if you want to say something nice about me I’ll give you a clue: I’m a very old man.
    All the best.

    Hi Alicia,
    I sort of agree with Newman above, you sure don’t look like you’ve been chasing news over the last 15 years (with all due respect, lady).
    A big welcome to WHYS-where we ‘cast’ the news. I hope to be with you on the show soon. Have a great time.

    I have been whining for more Latin America coverage and with it more consciousness about how dynamic the changes are. The paradigm shifts that have taken place in South America are beginning to breach the field of vision in forms like the Brazilian Olympics….but as you know, there is so much more going on.

    A Latin America hand to interpret fresh news from Peru or Mexico or Nicaragua and the emergent issues would be a real boost for those of us listeners rooted in the Spanish speaking community. I am sure you have lots of interests in many directions and we can get some new brain stimulus from whatever unique quirks and twists your mind has to offer. Welcome to the asylum.
