Latino USA

Sunday at 11am

Multi award-winning Latino USA, the radio journal of news and culture, is the only nationally distributed English-language radio program produced from a Latino perspective. It combines high-quality news, cultural and public affairs journalism with compelling sound to bring a rich understanding to a wide spectrum of listeners.

Latino influences and contributions continue to have an increasingly important impact on the evolving identity, life, and reality of the U.S. Latino USA acts as a forum for connections and reflects the experience of a changing population from a Latino viewpoint.

Maria Hinojosa has been the host of NPR's Latino USA since its inception. She has been the senior correspondent for the acclaimed NOW on PBS and anchors the Emmy Award-winning One on One with Maria Hinojosa from WGBH/La Plaza. She spent eight years as the Urban Affairs Correspondent for CNN, and before that worked as a reporter for NPR News in New York.

Latino USA has gained a loyal audience and won more than a dozen prestigious national awards, including a Scripps Howard Foundation National Journalism Award and awards from the communications industry for journalistic and production excellence.
