Let's Talk New Mexico

Let's Talk New Mexico, Thursdays at 8a. Call 277-5866 to participate live on the show.

We've done a remodel of what you know as the KUNM Call In Show. We've updated the name of the show and our theme music. We'll be diversifying the format of the show in coming months and years to include a wide range of methods for bringing you the voices of New Mexicans in discussions of our most pressing issues and challenges, and to share advancements and artistic achievements. We'll also continue to share the audio of our shows online and in our podcast on iTunes. 

Questions? Comments? Email KUNM News Director Elaine Baumgartel.
