NPR will distribute the RADIO AMBULANTE podcast beginning NOVEMBER 22nd. The show, hosted by Executive Producer DANIEL ALARCÓN, is a Spanish-language audio journalism podcast focusing on "neglected and under-reported Latin American and Latino stories."
"DANIEL ALARCÓN and the RADIO AMBULANTE team are pioneers in audio storytelling in the Spanish language. Their ear for language, beguiling imagination and deep journalism are a rare combination," said NPR VP of Programming ANYA GRUNDMANN. "RADIO AMBULANTE is such a natural partner for NPR and will help us connect with important stories and communities in new ways."
"There are more than 50 million Spanish speakers living in the US, and we too are part of the 'public' in 'public radio'," said ALARCÓN. "It's exciting to be part of NPR, helping it sound a little bit more like AMERICA. NPR shares our journalistic values, our commitment to good storytelling, and our desire to innovate. We couldn't be happier, or prouder, to join forces."
