The idea of “out of the classroom and into the community” is the focus of the re-launching of KUNM's University Showcase—with a major segment produced by KUNM Reporter Megan Kamerick.
This Friday, Sept. 16 at 8 a.m. on University Showcase, Kamerick will talk with Professor Gordon Rahn of the Innocence and Justice Project at The University of New Mexico, as well as Anthony Ray Hinton, who was exonerated from Alabama's death row after 30 years.
UNM Communication and Journalism (C&J) students will be supporting the monthly feature by producing a segment of the show. The students involved are in The New Mexico News Port program in the C&J Department.
“KUNM is an important outlet for serving New Mexicans with timely news and information, and often that news originates here at UNM,” says C&J Professor Michael Marcotte. “Our new student journalism lab — The New Mexico News Port — is built to experiment with collaborative coverage, so we’re in a good position to help. We appreciate the great campus partnership we have with KUNM.”
The new half-hour monthly programing airs on the third Friday of each month at 8:00 a.m.
KUNM-FM is available at 89.9 in central and northern New Mexico with a live stream and two-week archive at KUNM.org.
