Moderator TOM ARVISO, JR., a Navajo native, is originally from Raytheon Window Rock, AZ. He is the Chief Executive Officer of the Navajo Times Publishing Company, Inc. and the Publisher of the Navajo Times newspaper. The Navajo Times is a weekly publication and is the largest Native American owned newspaper with a circulation of 24,000 and over 150,000 readers each week.

He was hired as the managing editor of the Navajo Times in October 1988 and assumed the duties of editor and publisher in 1993.
A staunch believer and advocate for Freedom of the Press, Arviso fought many battles with tribal government leaders and officials over editorial control and censorship of the Navajo Times for a number of years. To seek independence from tribal government ownership, Arviso convinced the Navajo Nation Council to approve the for-profit incorporation of the Navajo Times. The tribal council voted unanimously in favor of this official legislation on October 23, 2003. On January 1, 2004, The Navajo Times officially began operation as the Navajo Times Publishing Company, Incorporated.
Arviso majored in journalism at Arizona State University and at Mesa Community College. He is a former board vice president and treasurer of the Native American Journalists Association's Board of Directors and is currently a member of the Arizona Newspapers Association's Board of Directors.
Arviso, his wife Brenda, their children and grandchildren currently reside in St. Michaels, AZ.
