Katie Stone

Host

Katie Stone is the host and producer of The Children's Hour. Her goal with the show is to bring informative, entertaining and engaging radio programming to KUNM listeners, showcasing local kids and kid-friendly organizations, while involving kids in all aspects of the production. She works with a crew of kids who help engineer the show, write scripts and reviews, choose music, and assist with the live broadcast.  

Katie also reaches into the community, partnering with teachers to create radio shows for class projects, and collaborating with various professors at the University of New Mexico to provide a platform for graduate students to explain their research in a way a kid’s audience can understand.  She hopes everyone listening comes away with new knowledge about the topic du jour. 

Katie started working in radio when she was just 14 years old at WDGC-fm in Downers Grove, Illinios. Outside of KUNM, Katie can be found advocating for families who have kids with disabilities, or working in the garden with her husband Andrew.  She is the step mother of two grown daughters, the mom of Emma and Eli, who produces the podcasts of the show, and the grandmother of Ruthie.  Katie lives in a handmade house on a solar powered organic farm in Albuquerque with her true love and their chickens, fruit, vegetables, children, llama, cats and dog.
