Crystal Chavez is Texas Public Radio’s Morning Edition host. She wakes up before the crack of dawn to bring you the latest San Antonio and statewide news, traffic and weather.
She is also the host and co-producer of the weekly Fronteras program airing Fridays at 3 p.m. and Saturday at 6 a.m. Fronteras is a multimedia collaboration among seven public radio stations across the Southwest funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Before moving to San Antonio, Crystal was the Morning Edition producer at KUT News in Austin, Texas, where she received an award from the Texas Medical Association for an in-depth feature series on whooping cough. Crystal graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and calls Corpus Christi, Texas home.
Fronteras is a collaborative regional news project that explores the changing culture and demographics of the American Southwest. From Central Texas to Southern California, and from Las Vegas to the Mexican border, Fronteras brings emphasis to Latino and Native American life and border issues affecting American politics, social order, economics and the environmental landscape.
