Being Latino in Iowa: Spanish Language Media

Mar 29, 2011

Latino immigrants have wielded a huge influence over the media landscape in Iowa. Twenty years ago when they first began to arrive looking for work, almost all of the newspapers they saw and broadcast outlets they heard were delivered in English. But as Iowa Public Radio's Rob Dillard tells us, these days it's nearly impossible to scan a radio dial or walk by a newspaper stand without noticing some content in Spanish.

Being in Iowa is funded in part by The Principal Financial Group Foundation.
