KLRU-TV, Austin PBS is proud to present Decibel, the new face of our news and public affairs initiative. With Decibel, we want to amplify the stories that really matter, and listen to what you want to talk about. All you have to do to join the conversation is like our Facebook page!
Judy Maggio is the Editorial Director of News & Public Affairs at KLRU. She’s been fortunate to spend her entire career pursuing work she loves in a city she loves. She served as the longtime main anchor at both KVUE and KEYE in Austin, but says leading the Decibel team is the “best news gig on the planet.” Judy and her husband, Thad Rosenfeld, have two grown daughters, Carly and Stephanie. Judy enjoys swimming in Barton Springs, listening to live music and all things ATX (except traffic).
Blair is from Oklahoma, but don't hold that against her. She jumped at the chance to get back into the PBS world, and joined KLRU as their news videographer. When she's not working on a story, Blair enjoys running with her dog, not running with her husband, and generally wasting time at Book People.
Joe Rocha is a producer and videographer for KLRU's Decibel. He's originally from South San Antonio but has lived in Austin since 2002. Joe has worked on projects ranging from the nationally-aired PBS show, BBQ with Franklin to the Emmy award-winning series, Austin Revealed. In his personal life, he loves globe-trotting with his wife, Emily and taking his daughter, Ella Jane, to Austin City Limits tapings. Joe is also a guitarist/keyboardist in the local band, Cecilia + the Broken Hearts.
Angela Maldonado is a producer and Audience Engagement Specialist for KLRU’s Decibel. She comes to the team after being a morning/dayside producer at the 24-hour news channel Spectrum News.

Outside of work, she’s a producer for Testify, a monthly storytelling show. You can find her performing with her improv troupe around town, record hunting with her boyfriend and taking too many cat pictures for her Instagram.
