Miguel Macias

Senior Producer, All Things Considered

Miguel Macias is a Senior Producer at All Things Considered, where he is proud to work with a top-notch team to shape the content of the daily show.

Prior to joining NPR in 2021, Macias was Supervising Senior Producer for Latino USA, where he led a team of talented producers and editors. Before that, Macias was an Associate Professor at Brooklyn College CUNY, where he taught radio production and journalism for a decade. Before moving into academia, Macias worked as the Los Angeles Bureau Chief for Youth Radio; for American Public Media as an Associate Producer and Director for the Marketplace Morning Report; and at New York Public Radio WNYC's Radio Rookies as an Associate Producer. Macias is also proud to have worked as a volunteer for the NGO MADRE. As such, he has trained Indigenous radio reporters in Peru, instructed video editing to teenagers in Colombia, and taught radio production to activists in Nicaragua.

Macias received a Peabody Award in 2006 as the Associate Producer for WNYC Radio Rookies' Mosholu series. More recently, he received an 2022 Ondas Award for his audio documentary, Limbo.

Originally from Seville, Spain, Macias moved to the U.S. in 2001 and earned an M.F.A. in Television Production from Brooklyn College.

In his spare time... he doesn't have any spare time. But he does love to spend time with friends, and produce video and audio documentaries.
