Cristina Baccin

Host

  

As a former Professor of Journalism and Social Communication in Argentina and Spain, she brings her professional experience to KUNM as much as her deep vital understanding of living in countries that suffered long oppressive times and underdevelopment, working mostly in educational, community and participatory communication.

 

A member of Raíces Collective since 2008, Cristina hosts and produces bilingual “Raíces” shows joyfully sharing the richness and diversity of music and culture from throughout the Americas. She also hosts and produces “Corazón Tanguero”, inviting you to dive into tango music, history and popular culture from Argentina and around the world. 

 

Since 2013, Cristina has served as Coordinator of “Espejos de Aztlán”, a Latino Public Affairs show that highlights the issues that concern the Chicano/Latino community bringing the voice of people who are rarely heard, with all its beauty, courage and strength.

She speaks English fluently and is a native Spanish and Italian speaker. Her interviews are humorous, sensitive and deeply in touch with the audience such that they get to know her guests professionally and personally.
