Public radio has a diversity problem. In a medium that struggles so hard to be balanced, neutral, and inclusive in everything it does, it still has few black female reporters and hosts.
DaLyah Jones is one of those few. Actually, in Texas, she’s the only person who can claim to be a black, female public radio host. She is a reporter, podcaster, and fellow All Things Considered host at KUT-FM in Austin. Turns out, that makes her somewhat of a pioneer.
And it gets lonely.
