Xcaret Nuñez

Reporter, KOSU

I cover agriculture and rural communities for Harvest Public Media, and I’m based at Oklahoma’s NPR member station, KOSU in Oklahoma City.

I am originally from Yuma, Arizona, the Southwest city known as the “Lettuce Capital of the World” and “Sunniest City on Earth.” I’m a proud first-generation college graduate — I graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a minor in religious studies.

I previously worked at KBIA, the NPR affiliate in Columbia, Missouri, as a reporter, producer and anchor, where I covered both community and education beats. I also covered Missouri’s 2022 legislative session for Missouri News Network and worked as an intern for Here & Now, NPR and WBUR’s midday news magazine program.

Feel free to say hi or share any story ideas with me via email at xcaret@kosu.org or follow me on Twitter @Xcaret_News.
