Headling Humboldt Logo


Headline Humboldt is a public affairs program summing up the news of the week. KEET-TV is dedicated to providing a platform for people in our community to express their concerns to any number of topics; that is why each episode centers around an in-depth interview with an area newsmaker or public official. Topics will include politics, economics, arts, health care, and issues of equity, among others.


Headline Humboldt airs every Friday at 7 p.m. on KEET-HD with a simulaneous showing on our YouTube channel. Previously aired episodes can be viewed on-demand via our website, or using the PBS Video App.

Host Bio

Picture of host James Faulk

Award-winning journalist James Faulk has worked for decades in the Humboldt County news business, starting out as a morning news reader for KINS morning news cut-ins, then spending a decade at the Eureka Times-Standard where he covered every beat and ended his time there as city editor.

After a knee injury, Faulk became addicted to opioid pain medication and lost everything, ending up homeless and alone. Since that time, with the support of his wife Amy, he's rebuilt his life and career and now deploys that experience to broaden his coverage of local issues and provide increased understanding for those suffering with substance use disorder.

Faulk ultimately conceived, and with Producer Laura Montagna, developed the lauded local documentary, Addicts Among Us.
