A Radio Network for the Community

Radio Campesina is a eleven-station network of radio stations in four states with a loyal following of one million daily listeners, the third largest Latino Spanish-format radio network in the nation. Radio Campesina ranks among the top stations in each of its markets.
The radio stations are part of a larger movement, realizing Cesar Chavez's vision of Spanish-language radio that operates as a community center over the airwaves by entertaining, educating and actively involving its listeners in their communities.
Radio Campesina's Misson

Enhancing the social and economic well being of the Latino community through a unique mix of popular regional Mexican music, news and quality, interactive educational programming.
By entertaining, educating and spurring its largely immigrant and first-generation listeners to actively participate in their communities, Radio Campesina is more than a series of radio stations. It is owned by Latinos, ran by Latinos and for the benefit of Latinos. It also serves as  a way to reach the Latino community and as a bridge between Latinos and the larger community in which they live. Radio Campesina provides communities with an independent voice and generates widespread local participation and community support among listeners. 

Educational Radio for the 21st Century
Radio Campesina extends the promise and mission of educational radio by bringing educational radio to the masses in underserved populations. Unlike most of its allies in the world of educational radio, Radio Campesina's listener share is competitive with commercial English and Spanish language stations in each of its markets. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting recognized the network for its groundbreaking approach.

New National Focus
Recently transplanting network operations from Bakersfield to Phoenix better positions Radio Campesina to become a national Latino broadcast operation based in the heart of the nation's 6th largest municipality with a large and growing Latino population. It also boasts the nation's only woman programming director for a Spanish-language radio network.
