The California Report: 25 Years

KQED celebrates 25 years of The California Report with a virtual retrospective with public media luminaries, California stories, and music.

With its sprawling territory, climatic and cultural extremes, and teeming and diverse population, California is tough to cover. Yet, for the last 25 years, The California Report has knit together this vast and varied state, bringing you news stories and culture that define California’s role in American life.

Join KQED for a livestream event commemorating The California Report’s 25 years of serving as the on-air chronicle of California’s daily concerns, evolving culture, and ongoing heart. Hosts Sasha Khokha, Lily Jamali, and Saul Gonzalez share a virtual retrospective behind-the-scenes, looking back at some of the stories that not only shaped the state but also the show. They’ll hear from beloved TCR alums -- including All Things Considered co-host Ailsa Chang, NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith, KQED’s own Scott Shafer, and more -- with personal tributes and live conversation about their most memorable experiences reporting for the show.

Featuring live multimedia storytelling by longtime The California Report Magazine producer Suzie Racho and performances by California musicians Anaí Adina and Megan Keely.

Celebrate 25 years of your state, 25 years of your stories!
