Suzy Exposito

We are thrilled to announce that Suzy Exposito is joining the Latino Initiatives team as a cultural columnist.

An authoritative voice on all things Latin music, Exposito joined the newsroom in October 2020 from Rolling Stone, where she served as the publication’s first-ever Latin music editor. She was also the first Latina to write a cover story for the magazine, which put a spotlight on the record-breaking Boricua hitmaker, Bad Bunny.

She has continued that great work at The Times, where as staff music reporter she’s profiled artists including Rauw Alejandro, L.A.’s own Becky G and legendary group Los Bukis. Exposito has also reported on the rise of Latinx podcasters and on Rancho Humilde, a groundbreaking L.A.-based label that is shaping the future of Mexican regional music.

In her new role, Exposito will explore the many contours of Latinidad and will be a critical piece in The Times’ efforts to grow our Latino readership. She reports to Martinez and started Feb. 21.
