Native Radio on Front Lines of COVID-19 Public Outreach

Flagstaff, AZ - Native Public Media’s (NPM) network of Native Radio broadcasters across 15 states launched the COVID-19 Public Outreach Campaign to raise awareness against the spread of COVID-19 among Native Americans, considered one of the most vulnerable populations in the U.S.

“KTDB has been broadcasting non-stop on the COVID -19 pandemic in our area. I have been on the air along with Board Members, Tribal officials, and chapter officials. The radio station has been very instrumental in our ability to educate the community on hand-washing, social distancing and implementing the recent weekend curfew,” stated David Nez Executive Director/Acting Superintendent for KTDB of Ramah New Mexico. “We appreciate NPM for any assistance we can get.”
