Kamaya TruittDirector of New Talent and Community Partnerships
Kamaya Truitt, WUNC’s first Director of New Talent and Community Partnerships, began her journalism career at WUNC in 2012 as a Youth Reporter.
Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Truitt moved to Durham, North Carolina, and made it her home. She quickly matriculated from student reporter to Youth mentor and was later named Director of WUNC’s Youth Reporting institute. Truitt has produced radio reports for national broadcast on NPR’s Here & Now, and Oakland Youth Radio. She also currently serves on WUNC Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accountability Committee.
By creating and developing new school partnerships, Truitt was able to launch WUNC’s first Virtual Youth Reporting Institute. The evolution of the institute doubled student involvement, and expanded the program’s reach from the Triangle to the outer banks. Through the program, Truitt trains students how to record, write, and produce their own radio stories for broadcast. Her purpose is to intentionally carve out a platform that will amplify youth voices to tell stories that matter to their communities.
Truitt graduated from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, with a Bachelors in Psychology. Her expertise includes community outreach and development, Audio Training, and providing youth equitable access to unique opportunities.
