About Us

Stanford Hispanic Broadcasting

This is a bilingual cultural network that broadcast on-air and on-line, and its main mission is to showcase the world of Latinos and Hispanics (and people of this heritage).

The SHB was born from previous productions by same editor/producer/host, and now brings the new generation of shows under “Atenea Americana” produced at KZSU Stanford Radio (hence the name), but is an independent project. It is recorded and aired on Stanford Radio, and then broadcasted in different platforms online and on-air around the world.”

Atenea Americana

Atenea in Spanish means “The House of Culture.” It is a name inspired by the goddess of war and culture “Athens” (in Spanish Atenea). In many Hispanic countries, there is a space called “Atenea” or “Ateneo.” This place is usually a hub for culture, where people meet to enjoy, get informed and discuss matters of culture. This show represents that. The aims to join people through culture. (please read about our mission statements)
