Tina Pamintuan

General Manager

Tina Pamintuan got her start in radio as a college DJ working the early morning shift, and came to journalism through an internship at National Public Radio (NPR). Over the next six years, she continued to work at NPR in editorial and production positions for Morning Edition’s Radio Expeditions and NPR’s cultural desk. In that time, she founded Xtreme Youth Zone Media, a training program for Washington, DC, teenagers. She also served as Editor at Open City Magazine, a publication covering Asian American immigrant neighborhoods in New York City.


Before coming to KALW in 2018, Tina Pamintuan created and founded the Audio Journalism program at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Journalism , where she worked for 12 years.

Ways to Connect

We're airing a special lineup of documentaries as we close out 2018 and transition into the new year. It's just a taste of what's to come in 2019 as we invest more airtime and support for independent radio makers and podcasters in the Bay Area and beyond.

Thanks to YOU, our listeners and supporters, we met our first-ever year-end match TWO DAYS EARLY! We are grateful to our anonymous donor, Donna A., for making the end of 2018 a little sweeter, and the beginning of 2019 a whole lot brighter.  Of course, we ALWAYS welcome late comers and stragglers...To help kick off our 2019 fundraising, or top off a recent donation, click here!
