¡Queremos Más! We want More! Public media cannot represent this country’s diversity unless it possesses the talent and tools to do so. In order to become a more inclusive public media system we must increase opportunities for Latino public media professionals at every level of programming, production, and management. Más Public Media is an initiative by the Latino Public Radio Consortium (LPRC) with an overarching goal to engage and support Latino public media professionals and those seeking a career within public media.
You can get started by joining our Más Public Media Facebook Group, review and apply for jobs, internships & volunteer opportunities within the public media system, or you can read our blog to learn more about public media.
