Anamaria Artemisa Sayre
Anamaria Artemisa Sayre is co-host of Alt.Latino, NPR's pioneering radio show and podcast celebrating Latin music and culture since 2010.
As a multimedia producer for NPR Music, she is focused on elevating the diversity of sounds and stories that define Latinx culture.

In addition to her work at NPR Music, Sayre has appeared on many acclaimed NPR news shows and podcasts including Weekend Edition, Pop Culture Happy Hour, All Songs Considered and Code Switch.
Originally from southern California, she's an avid lover of mountains, beaches and stories that pair best with a cafecito in her abuela's backyard.
