ALTERNATIVE MEDIA


The perceptions and pronouncements of human beings are inherently subjective. Every news article is the product of all sorts of highly subjective cultural, nationalistic, and political assumptions. And all journalism serves one faction’s interest or another’s.


The relevant distinction is not between journalists who have opinions and those who have none, a category that does not exist. It is between journalists who candidly reveal their opinions and those who conceal them, pretending they have none.

Carolina Guerrero is a media entrepreneur, and co-founder of Radio Ambulante, a groundbreaking Spanish language podcast that uses long-form audio journalism to tell neglected and under-reported Latin American stories. Guerrero serves as Executive Director of the project, and is passionate about solving the problem of inequality of access, and democratizing the kinds of stories being told across the region. Before co-founding Radio Ambulante in 2011, Guerrero worked as a promoter for cultural and social projects, creating a bridge between organizations in her native Colombia, and public and private institutions in Latin America and the United States, designing and managing festivals and art exhibits, as well as teaching workshops and planning fundraising events. A current John S. Knight Journalism fellow at Stanford University, Carolina Guerrero and her team, were awarded the 2014 Gabriel García Márquez Prize for Innovation in Journalism, the most prestigious journalism honor in Latin America.
