Beginning in 1993 at KUT in Austin and broadcast weekly to a national audience on NPR, Latino USA provides a voice to the still-marginalized growing minority Hispanic population in the U.S. Produced as an educational and entertainment weekly news magazine, Latino USA provides unique historical insight into the history, culture, and social issues that are underrepresented in other mainstream media. The archive continues to be used to support student learning by producer and educator Maria Hinojosa, and as a source for material to place news into an historical context.
