Poet Nikky Finney says, when it comes to race in this country, Americans are living dangerous times.
Paige Phelps joined KJZZ as a senior producer for The Show in February 2017.
Phelps is new to Arizona, having arrived by way of Houston's "Houston Matters," the daily talk show on KUHF. Prior to that, she learned radio at KRTS in Marfa, Texas, and covered subjects from water issues in the high desert, to rural healthcare, to hermit monks inhabiting a ghost town.
She began her journalism career in print, first with a community newspaper in Dallas and later, the Dallas Morning News.
She has a dog and a cat and an undying (and wholly unironic) love for Dolly Parton.
