Nash Jones grew up in Albuquerque and returned home in 2017 after 11 years away living in Portland, OR, and Oakland, CA. Storytelling has consistently been at the core of Nash’s varied career and is in part what brought them to KUNM, first as an on-air volunteer with Spoken Word Hour and Weekend Edition, and now as the host of Morning Edition.
Nash has utilized storytelling in the fields of training and community education, student and youth development, and strategic communication consultation. Nash also performs as a personal storyteller, is the Vice President of the Board of Directors at Storytellers of New Mexico, a statewide nonprofit, and is the founder, producer, and host of Duke City Story Slam, a monthly live storytelling event in downtown Albuquerque.
They are passionate about public radio and enjoy helping KUNM listeners across New Mexico wake up and stay informed as the local anchor of Morning Edition.
