KALW is local public radio from the San Francisco Bay Area, with BBC, NPR, and innovative programming.

Join a field trip to KALW for a behind-the-scenes look at the reporting and production of “Your Call” with Rose Aguilar.

Rose has been the host of “Your Call” since 2006. In 2005, she took a six-month road trip through the “red states” to find out why people vote the way they do (or not) and what issues they care about. Red Highways: A Journey into the Heartland chronicles her experience. Rose has written for Al Jazeera English, Truthout, The Nation, and AlterNet. She’s currently working on a book about older women activists and a new radio show focusing on investigative journalism. She is a member of the Native American Journalists Association and mentor-editor for The OpEd Project, an organization that works to increase the range of voices we hear in the media.

Listen to Rose’s work on KALW here: Or watch her at the Journalism Department’s Day of Ethics: This field trip can count toward Journalism students’ required events. Students will need to arrange their own transport and complete an SF State field trip form.
