Community Cares is our outreach program where we present people and organizations in our community doing good things that you might not otherwise be aware of. 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.
AM830 congratulates our Community Cares program for winning an RTNA Golden Mic award.
It won for a very special episode that aired called “Justin Carr Wants World Peace”.
A story about a teen, Justin Carr, who died suddenly two years ago. After his death, his parents, Susan and Darrell came to learn just how wonderful a kid he was. They’d always known he was smart, artistic, compassionate, but it was only after his death that they really began to understand how deep those traits were and so they have carried on in his name, promoting many of his programs and dreams. It’s a very wonderful and inspiring story!
Tune in every Sunday at 5:30am & 10:00pm, award winning Southern Califorina broadcaster Tammy Trujillo covers the issues & organizations from the Southern Califorina area that matter to you, your family & your community!
Tammy 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.
She joined KLAA as Public Service Director in 2012, but it was actually a return for her to Angel Stadium. Tammy 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.
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. Tammy 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. Tammy lives in the Pasadena area with her musician husband Randy and their family of wonderful rescued dogs and cats.
