Taylor Velazquez


Taylor Velazquez has always had a passion for writing and telling stories. Graduating from the University of New Mexico in May of 2021 with degrees in both Political Science and American Studies, she is ready to dedicate her time to reporting. 

She has interned at Albuquerque The Magazine, but over the past few years she found herself drawn towards broadcasting and public radio. With her experience at KUNM radio in Albuquerque as an intern, her focus has been on reporting social justice issues and plans to continue that work.  In her down time she enjoys listening to podcasts, practicing yoga, and being a proud dog mom to her very stubborn dachshund.
