The winners will be announced at the 55th Annual Awards Gala on Sunday, April 2, at the Marriot Marquis in Times Square.

Nueva York has received a total of six trophies in the past three years for its programming. The thirty-minute cable show, which focuses on Latino and Spanish-speaking communities in the New York metropolitan area, highlights people and important events in the world of politics, art, and culture.

This year, the program received nominations in four categories: historical/cultural, environment, societal concerns, and magazine program. In the societal concerns category, the program was nominated for its segment on the Dream Act, which featured Lehman Honors student Melissa-Garcia Velez and Lehman Prof. Alyshia Galvez. The segment followed undocumented students as they pursued the passage of the Dream Act in the U.S. Senate in 2010.

Prof. Lerzundi is a faculty member and former chair of Lehman’s Department of Journalism, Communication and Theatre. Prior to joining Lehman, he was features editor of United Press International and editor-in-chief of a daily Spanish-language newspaper in New York and wrote the first style and reference manual for Latino journalists in the U.S. At Lehman, he was instrumental in establishing the multilingual journalism program, the first of its kind in the country.
