From The Newsroom: A Second Round For Michael Hinojosa; Fantasy Gifts From 'The Book'

Dallas Independent School District

The top local stories this morning from the KERA Newsroom: Michael Hinojosa is officially the superintendent of Dallas schools. Last night, the school board formally approved his contract.

Also, more minorities are applying to medical school – except for African-American men. Last year, fewer African-American men applied to medical school than in 1978.

And finally, we’ll dig into some of the fantasy gifts that are part of the 89th Neiman Marcus’ Christmas Catalog.

You can listen to North Texas stories weekdays at 8:20 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM. 

Former KERA staffer Krystina Martinez was an assistant producer. She produced local content for Morning Edition and She also produced The Friday Conversation, a weekly series of conversations with North Texas newsmakers. Krystina was also the backup newscaster for the Texas Standard.
