Latino USA is produced out of our Harlem office by The Futuro Media Group – an independent non-profit media organization that explores and gives voice to the diversity of the American experience. Latino USA is a weekly hour-long radio magazine show hosted by Maria Hinojosa. The show airs in about 200 public radio stations nationwide with a podcast that got more than 1 million downloads in 2017.
We are looking for the next great radio producer! We want self-starters to help in the production of the show covering everything from news to cultural trends affecting Latinos in the U.S. The staff is small, so there is a lot of room to do meaningful work.
Send cover letter outlining how your interests, skills and experiences that line up with what Latino USA does. Please also email a one-page resume and a writing sample of no more than 3 pages, something that shows off your mastery of style and content. If you have audio samples, send links or mp3s also.
