Healthy You with Pamela Hughes: Valley fever

Whether you're new to the Valley or a native Arizonan, if you haven't heard of Valley fever yet, you will.

Pamela Hughes explains that the diagnosis is often missed and people are treated for things such as flu, pneumonia and bronchitis before doctors even look for Valley fever, something that could be seen more in Arizona. She gives you tips and ideas on how to protect yourself from being misdiagnosed.

About the Author


Pamela left Pittsburgh, PA in 1996 to study Broadcast Journalism at Arizona State University and has never looked back. Since then, her radio career has taken her to Wisconsin; she has been a public speaker for Monster.com and has taught a few semesters at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at ASU. Currently, she is pulling double duty on the Bruce St. Jame's Show. She spends half the show providing a woman's perspective on the top talk topics of the day and the other half of the show delivering informative, relatable newscasts to our KTAR listeners.

Once the show is over, Pamela gets out of the studio and gets into the newsroom where she is also the Managing Editor of the KTAR News Department.

When she isn't behind a microphone or chasing the big story of the day, you'll find Pamela at home with her husband Kris, daughter Riley and her crazy Chocolate Lab named Chewie. Her professional and personal life keep her quite busy but when she manages to find a few free moments she likes to spend them in her garden, working out, trying new recipes and discovering new restaurants.
