Latino USA has an upcoming program in the works called “Abuelos” (grandparents) that we’re seeking pitches for.
Here are the particular angles we’re interested in:
- Older people falling in love;
- LGBT grandparents;
- Grandparents’ roles: how they can step into a void or fill other needs for a younger person;
- Grandparents in the diaspora (especially with split families);
- Vox from people about what it’s like to be a grandparent or a grandchild (which the show will build into a multi-generational montage).
The pay rate is $125 per minute.
I’m happy to answer specific questions, but please send your pitches directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and all the best,
Editor, NPR’s Latino USA
