Maria Hinojosa

Emmy Award-winning Journalist, Author and Latina Leader

Delivering Democracy 2020 speaker is the pioneering, Emmy award-winning journalist Maria Hinojosa. Currently anchor and executive producer of the Peabody Award-winning show “Latino USA,” distributed by NPR, as well as co-host of “In the Thick,” Futuro Media’s new political podcast, Hinojosa has informed millions about the changing cultural and political landscape in America and abroad. She is also a new contributor to the long-running news program “CBS Sunday Morning” and a frequent guest on MSNBC.

Hinojosa’s almost 30-year career in journalism includes reporting for PBS, CBS, WNBC, CNN, NPR, and anchoring the Emmy Award-winning talk show “Maria Hinojosa: One-on-One.” She is the author of three books and has won dozens of awards, including: four Emmys, the John Chancellor Award, the Studs Terkel Community Media Award, two Robert F. Kennedy Awards, the Edward R. Murrow Award, and the Ruben Salazar Lifetime Achievement Award.

Hinojosa was the first Latina to anchor a PBS “Frontline” report: “Lost in Detention,” which aired in October 2011, explored abuse at immigrant detention facilities, and it garnered attention from Capitol Hill as well as mainstream and Spanish-language media. As a reporter for NPR, Hinojosa was among the first to report on youth violence in urban communities on a national scale, and during her eight years as CNN’s urban affairs correspondent, she often took viewers into communities rarely shown on television. At Futuro Media, Hinojosa continues to bring attention to experiences and points of view that are often overlooked or underreported in mainstream media, all while mentoring the next generation of diverse journalists to delve into authentic and nuanced stories that impact their communities.

A frequent speaker across the country, she was the inaugural Distinguished Journalist in Residence at her alma mater, Barnard College, in 2019;  and a fellow at Shorenstein Center at Harvard’s Kennedy School in 2018.

A Mexican immigrant herself, Maria Hinojosa speaks not only truly from the heart but also from her own experiences. She has become a leader as one who best seeks out and tells the untold stories of those who need to be heard.
