Oscar Garza

Senior Editor (he/him)

Throughout my career, my two passions have been culture and politics. And in my time here, I've been able to dig deep into both. I'm in my second stint as politics editor, having overseen the 2012 and 2020 elections. In between, I was Senior Producer of The Frame, KPCC's daily arts and entertainment show. And I've recently added our coverage of health and emerging communities to my editing portfolio.

I've lived in L.A. since 1990, but I'm a native Texan and maintain a healthy level of Lone Star State chauvinism. To make things worse, I'm a SF Giants fan. (Willie Mays was my childhood hero.) But I love L.A. for its food, diversity and — above all else — its wealth of record stores.

What questions do you have about politics, diversity or health coverage?
