Latino USA, a great show with a great team, is hiring 1-2 engineers/producers. It sounds like the details are still TBD which is the perfect time to get a foot in the door and show what you do best. Details below.

Good luck!


Can you expertly mix a radio show on PT or something similar? Do you like deadline-driven news or long-format docs? Are you familiar with Latino issues? If you can say ‘yes!’ to one or all of these, Latino USA would like to talk to you. We’re in the process of looking for hard workers who can handle the pressure of meeting a weekly deadline and thrive on working in a casual-but-challenging environment.

Latino USA is looking to fill 1 or 2 positions right now. Preferably, we’d love it if you already live in New York, but if you don’t, that’s OK, too. We can still talk about the possibilities. At this point, we’re determining whether these positions are FT or PT, but if either of the below descriptions interests you, then please get in touch with us and specify what you’re looking for.
