Grants to Radio Bilingue
2012 (Inactive Grant)
FRESNO, CALIFORNIA — Radio Bilingüe is the only national Spanish-language non-commercial public radio network in the United States. It owns and operates six full power FM stations in California and broadcasts programming via satellite to more than 100 affiliate stations across the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Mexico, serving large urban markets as well as rural communities. Its listeners are Spanish-speaking rural farm workers, urban workers, and recent immigrants, as well as more established second- and third-generation bilingual Latinos who value their cultural roots and native language. This grant will support the production of Radio Bilingüe's flagship news programs, Noticiero Latino and Edición Semanaria during the 2012 election year.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Radio Bilingue $100,000 between 2010 and 2013.
