Host Gina Logue’s interview with Angele Latham will air from 6 to 6:30 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 14, on WMOT-FM Roots Radio 89.5 and www.wmot.org.

Latham, a journalism major from Bon Aqua, Tennessee, is the 2017 recipient of the Lindsay Sale-Tinney Award from the Outdoor Journalist Education Foundation of America. She received the honor at the annual conference of the Southeastern Outdoor Press Association, which took place last fall in Gilbertsville, Kentucky.

Latham said she does not hunt, but she acknowledged that her readership will include both hunters who defend the Second Amendment and environmentalists who insist on as little disturbance of the animal kingdom as possible.

“Hunters do appreciate wildlife just as much as nonhunters do,” Latham said. “Really, you do have to adapt to both audiences because we both appreciate nature. I can’t …  reach the audiences I want unless I understand what I’m presenting.”

You can learn more about Latham and her work here. She studies in MTSU’s School of Journalism, which is part of the university’s College of Media and Entertainment
