The Gallup Beat is a news blog that focuses on Gallup, New Mexico, with a (hopefully) fresh perspective. This is a work in progress, so what it is exactly, or what it will become, has not been defined — yet. However, the Beat’s mission is to tell stories about the city and the people who live here in a way that highlights the heart of the community and keeps a pulse on what’s important to locals.
Richard Reyes is the creator of the Gallup Beat. He is a journalist who works full-time as the city editor for the Gallup Independent. He has lived and worked in Gallup since 2010.
