Sun 07/09 7p: Join us this Sunday, as we speak with Jenni Monet, an indigenous multimedia journalist and documentary filmmaker based in New York City about how the field of journalism is changing and the lack of representation of Indigenous people in journalism and media experiences in the Era of Trump. Next, we share an interview conducted by GJ Alumni Luna Olavarria Gallegos, who speaks with Mari, a photojournalist at Claridad newspaper. They discuss the role of journalism, activism and the statehood of Puerto Rico. Be sure to join us live on KUNM 89.9 FM, or online at KUNM.org.

KUNM Call In Show 3/16 8a: President Trump has called the press the enemy of the American people. But that attitude from government leaders is nothing new here in New Mexico. It's Sunshine Week, so we’ll be talking about the essential local stories that reporters had to fight to get, and sunlight as a disinfectant in the dark corners of power.

In 2013, Santa Fe’s alternative weekly newspaper sued Governor Susana Martinez for violating the state’s public records law. That case goes to trial next month and the outcome could have huge repercussions for government transparency and freedom of the press in New Mexico.
