KJJP-FM 105.7 is currently operating at 15% of power, limiting its signal strength and range in the Amarillo-Canyon area. This due to complicated problems with its very old transmitter. Local engineers are continuing to work on the transmitter and are consulting with the manufacturer to diagnose and fix the problems. We apologize for this disruption and service as we work as quickly as possible to restore KJPFM to full power. In the mean time you can always stream either the HPPR Mix service or HPPR Connect service using the player above or the HPPR app.

Arezou Rezvani is a senior editor for NPR's Morning Edition and founding editor of Up First, NPR's daily news podcast.

Much of her work centers on people experiencing some of the worst days of their lives. She's traveled alongside NPR hosts to cover Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the Taliban's surge back to power from Pakistan, and helped tell the stories of Yemeni refugees stuck in Djibouti and children in towns across the U.S. devastated by opioid addiction.

Her work on a multi-part series about children and the opioid addiction won a Gracie Award in 2019. She was awarded a White House News Photographer Association Award for Politics is Personal, an audio/visual project she led ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

In 2014, she led an investigation into the Pentagon's 1033 program, which supplies local law enforcement with surplus military-grade weapons and vehicles. The findings were cited by lawmakers during hearings on Capitol Hill and contributed to the Obama administration's decision to scale back the program.

Rezvani holds a master's degree in journalism from the University of Southern California and bachelor's degrees in political science and French from the University of California, Davis.
