Dia De Los Muertos -Day of the Dead – is a joyous celebration of life that brings ancestors (the dead) back for a brief period of remembrance with their living kin.

Passed down through generations dating back to Mayan culture, it has become a much anticipated event. Learn more in this short informative video.
Cyndy Green has been intrigued by news since she got a toy printing press as a six year old. She switched to visual story telling at the age of 12 with her first still camera and moved to broadcasting after an internship in 1974.
