Latino USA story query

Call for pitches from Latino USA. Details below!

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:

Thanks and all the best,



Leda Hartman

Editor, NPR’s Latino USA
