Rose Aguilar began hosting Your Call full-time in 2006. She joined the show as a guest on the Friday Media Roundtable back in 2001 when she published a newsletter about women's issues.
In 2005, Rose took a six-month road trip through the so-called "red states" to find out why people vote the way they do (or not) and what issues they care about. She wrote a book about her experience called Red Highways: A Journey into the Heartland.
In addition to hosting Your Call, Rose provides a weekly commentary about undercovered activism for KPFK's Uprising, and writes about politics and social issues for Truthout and Al Jazeera English.
Before joining KALW, Rose was a reporter and weekend host for CNET Radio where she covered technology's impact on society. She got her start in the media in college, where she ran the TV and radio news departments and was the DJ of a heavy metal show.
Rose's interests include hiking, camping, vegan living, animal rights issues, live music, and spending as much time underwater as possible.
