Latin American Radio Programs of the Longhorn Radio Network
Created by the Institute of Latin American Studies and KUT, the "Latin American Review" radio program was broadcast as part of the Longhorn Radio Network. Covering all of Latin America and the Caribbean, the program aired from 1973 to 1984. The program was primarily divided into two segments, a news segment, dealing with reports from different parts of Latin America, and an interview segment, in which an individual or small group was interviewed. A diverse number of topics were covered including human rights abuses, economic conditions, music, popular culture, and the history and politics of the region. Originally airing as the "Latin American Press Review" the program had its title changed in 1976 to "Latin American Review."

The "Latin American Review" represents a contemporary history of Latin American culture and political engagement that documents both North American and Latin American voices during a period of civil, international strife. As the archive’s repository, the Benson Collection works closely with faculty in UT's Institute for Latin American Studies to examine and reexamine that critical period in the history of the hemisphere and to support student learning in multi-media environments, and historical memory of the public.
