 Maria Hinojosa Biography

Maria Hinojosa is an award-winning news anchor and reporter who covers America’s untold stories and highlights today’s critical issues. As the anchor and executive producer of NPR’s only Latino news and culture show Latino USA, and anchor and executive producer for the PBS series America By The Numbers with Maria Hinojosa, she has informed millions about the changing cultural and political landscape in America and abroad. In 2016, Hinojosa became the host of In The Thick, Futuro’s new political podcast, and Humanizing America, the company’s digital video series.

In April 2010, Hinojosa took a groundbreaking step by creating the Futuro Media Group, an independent nonprofit organization producing multimedia journalism that explores and gives a critical voice to the diversity of the American experience. Futuro Media is committed to telling stories often overlooked by mainstream media.

In over 25 years as a journalist, Hinojosa has worked for CNN, PBS CBS, WNBC, and WGBH. Her previous projects include PBS’ Need to Know series and the WGBH/La Plaza talk show Maria Hinojosa: One-on-One. Hinojosa was the first Latina to anchor a FRONTLINE report: aired in October 2011, “Lost in Detention” explored abuse at immigrant detention facilities, garnering attention from Capitol Hill to both the mainstream and Spanish-language media.

Hinojosa has reported hundreds of important stories—from the restrictive immigration policies in Fremont, Nebraska, to the effects of the oil boom in North Dakota, to stories of the poor in Alabama. As a reporter for NPR, Hinojosa was among the first to report on youth violence in urban communities on a national scale. During her eight years as CNN’s urban affairs correspondent, Hinojosa often took viewers into communities rarely shown on television. Now at Futuro Media, Hinojosa continues to bring attention to communities and issues usually ignored.

Hinojosa has received numerous awards for her work including: four Emmys, a 2014 Peabody Award for Latino USA, the 2012 John Chancellor Award for Excellence in Journalism, Robert F. Kennedy Award for Reporting on the Disadvantaged, the Studs Terkel Community Media Award and the Edward R. Murrow Award from the Overseas Press Club for best documentary for her groundbreaking “Child Brides: Stolen Lives.” In addition to her broadcast work, Hinojosa has been a weekly syndicated columnist for King Features/Hearst and is the author of two books: Raising Raul: Adventures Raising Myself and My Son, a motherhood memoir; and Crews: Gang Members Talk with Maria Hinojosa, an in-depth collection of interviews with gang members in New York City.

Hinojosa was born in Mexico City and raised in Chicago. She received her BA from Barnard College. She is currently the Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Chair of Latin American and Latino Studies at DePaul University in Chicago and a Global Post ‘Voces’ columnist. She lives with her husband, artist German Perez, and their son and daughter in Harlem.

  • U.S. Mambo, Three Steps Forward, Two Steps Back: The State of Latinos in the U.S.

    Latinos are the fastest growing demographic in our country but the growth in numbers brings many challenges. Award winning journalist MH talks about a phenomenon she calls The US Mambo—Three Steps Forward, Two Steps Back. For example, while Latinos represent a trillion dollar consumer market, more Latinos have been deported than any other time in history. While Sofia Vergara is the highest paid actress on TV, Latina teens have the highest rate of attempted suicide in the US. And while the number of Latino HS students taking the ACTs grew by 90% in the last 5 years, the city of Syracuse has a Latino drop out rate of 65%. The losers in this equation are not all Latinos. Given the future of this country will be increasingly Latino, what happens to this population will have a direct impact on the future of this country. This has to matter to all of us.
