KLAA Community Cares
Tune in every Sunday at 5:30am & 10:00pm as award winning Southern California broadcaster Tammy Trujillo covers the issues & organizations from the local area that matter to you, your family, and your community!
Community Cares, a recipient of the Radio & Television News Association (RTNA) Golden Mike award for the episode “Justin Carr Wants World Peace,” highlights the good things people and organizations in our community are doing. The show is hosted by Tammy Trujillo, a familiar voice here in Southern California, having been a news anchor, reporter, and show host on several L.A. area stations.
Trujillo has been working in the entertainment industry since the age of 2, taking time off to attend Long Beach Poly High School. Professionally voice-trained as a child, when the time came to decide what to do as a career, the phrase “I love music and people say I have a good voice” came to mind.
Trujillo interned for the Angels while doing graduate work at Cal State Fullerton and then went on to cover the Angels, along with the other Southern California pro sports teams, for her own company, Sportswatch Radio, during 1990. In 2012, she made her return to Angel Stadium, joining KLAA as Public Service Director.
She holds numerous RTNA Golden Mike Awards, one of the broadcasting industry’s highest honors. Her company, Creative Radio Resources, has also been honored with two Gold Hermes Creative Awards. Trujillo is a full-time professor at Mt. San Antonio College, heading up the Radio Broadcasting Program. Prior to Mt. SAC, she held faculty positions in the Broadcasting programs at Cal State Northridge, Long Beach City College (where she is member of the school’s Hall of Fame), and Orange Coast College as well as with several private Broadcasting schools.
She is a Board member of Pasadena’s Crown City News and a former Board member of APTRA-the Associated Press-Television Radio Association. Trujillo lives in the Pasadena area with her musician husband Randy and their family of wonderful rescued dogs and cats.
