Aron Bender talks with Kristen Aguirre, who at 31 and working for KUSA 9 News in Denver suffered a stroke. After months of rehab she returned to work, was fired, and then her dog died. Now she's an anchor and reporter at WLOS in Asheville, North Carolina. If you remember my podcast guest a couple months ago, Lori Lizarraga, Kristen is one of the Latinas let go by 9 News over the course of a year, written about it the article "LatinXed: 9News Got Rid of Three Latina Reporters This Past Year, Including Me."
