Latino USA Wins 2014 Peabody Award

NPR’s Latino USA is a recipient of the 74th Annual Peabody Awards, winning the category in Radio/Podcast for their “Gangs, Murder and Migration in Honduras” episode. There were nearly 1,200 Peabody Award entries this year with only 40 winners representing the best of the best of the media from the 2014 calendar year.

The Honduras episode is a portrait of a country and people in crisis. It looks at the issue of Central American migration, especially the child migration story that dominated headlines in 2014. The producers explore the economics behind the country’s sky-high murder rate, tell the stories of the hardships Honduran migrants experience in Mexico, and finally, look at what happens to deported Hondurans when they return to the dangerous situations that compelled them to leave in the first place.

We honor civility here at Latino USA. Keep your comments constructive and respectful of everyone's opinions.
Thank you.
