With coverage of issues such as arts, politics and traditions, KPFT will begin broadcasting National Native News starting in mid-May.
National Native News provides listeners with timely coverage on Native American and Indigenous communities. The program began in 1987 and is currently produced in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
“KPFT brings our audience a blend of lively morning news and analysis, and the award-winning National Native News very much fits the mold of what listeners know and love about our coverage,” said KPFT General Manager Duane Bradley, “With so many American concerned about the environmental, cultural and education matters facing indigenous communities, National Native News was a natural choice to feature.”
National Native News is heard on radio stations across the United States and Canada.
