About El Gato Local

Under the current administration, it is hard not to get lost in national news and leave local news lost and far, far behind. Admittedly, sometimes it’s hard not to literally get lost in national news due to a lack of understanding.

El Gato Local wants students to pay attention to local AND national news, all while understanding both.

El Gato will take the big national news story of the week, break any complexities down, and apply it locally to Tucson in hopes that University students will begin to be less intimidated by the news and more interested in it.
