Latino USA is a nationally syndicated public radio program and podcast produced by The Futuro Media Group and distributed nationwide by the Public Radio Exchange (PRX), after 27 years of being distributed by NPR. The program is anchored by Maria Hinojosa. According to founding Executive Producer Maria Emilia Martin, Latino USA was born following several failed attempts by NPR to create Latino-oriented programming for public radio. The program originated at KUT in Austin, Texas. KUT approached the Center for Mexican-American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin for a partnership in the production of the series. Dr. Gil Cardenas, director of the Center for Mexican-American Studies, co-wrote a grant proposal with KUT-FM to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) that eventually led to the creation of Latino USA, which premiered in April 1993. Originally launched by University of Texas in Austin and the Ford Foundation in 1992, it was a cutting-edge experiment to create an English-language Latino-centered public radio program. In 1992, Maria Emilia Martin left her position as editor at NPR in Washington, D.C. to become Latino USA's founding Executive Producer. She brought Maria Hinojosa on board as the program anchor, a post she still holds. More information...
