KSUT launches a local news department and welcomes two new reporters
KSUT Four Corners Public Radio is reaching a significant milestone: We're starting a news department to cover local and regional stories.
As part of that effort, Kate Redmond joins our staff as News Reporter and will be covering general topics from around the Four Corners.
Clark Adomaitis is our new Reporter for the Voices From the Edge of the Colorado Plateau project, a news partnership between KSUT and KSJD. Learn more about Kate and Clark below. Welcome to them both!
"With the hiring of two full-time news reporters, KSUT has fulfilled a long-term vision of creating a news department to fill some of the major gaps in local and regional news content for the Four Corners Region. We look forward to furthering our mission of connecting our diverse region with important stories and voices through Kate and Clark's reporting."Tami Graham, KSUT Executive Director
