CREWS Gang members Talk to Maria
Maria has been the voice of the Latino population in America. She is an award-winning television and radio journalist and author. As a Latina she has had many first. Maria was the first to host a prime-time talk show; the first to be seen and heard on CNN, NPR, and PBS’s NOW; and the first to anchor an hour-long CNN documentary. After some time Maria decided to leave CNN and become a producer and executor with her own show Maria One-on-One at PBS NOW.
Maria grew up as a Mexican immigrant in Chicago. She dealt with a lot of discrimination, which made her feel like an “outsider” and “that [her] voice was never really important.”
Maria's life changed when she stumbled onto NPR as a teenager and became the voice of the voiceless.
