Hi, my name is Angelo Lavo, I’m a native Tucsonan raised in the Mission Manor neighborhood on the south side. I created Tucson Del Sur News for my thesis-project in pursuit of a dual master’s degree in journalism and legal studies at the University of Arizona.
Tucson Del Sur News’ aim is to be a hyperlocal, digital news and journalism organization serving the south side community with an independent, accurate and balanced approach to the topics covered.
All of the content you find on this website has been originally produced by yours truly.
In an ideal world I would turn this project into a full-on news organization but at this point it is not looking like it will become a reality due mainly to a lack of financial resources.
However, I will make every effort to continue to report and produce news for Tucson’s south side communities as I transition out of the university and into the working world.
If you like what I’ve produced on the site, please feel free to drop a line and tell me why. You can also send me any suggestions or story ideas/news tips to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Feedback is always welcome and much appreciated.
Thanks for checking out my site and supporting local journalism.
