Anne Hoyt is a Mexican journalist of American descent. She is the Washington, D.C.-based political correspondent for the Mexican radio network Grupo Radio Centro. Previously, she worked in electronic and print media in Mexico City, mainly at Televisa, the largest media group in the Spanish-speaking world; and at the Latin American Institute of Educational Television (ILCE), local radio and several magazines. In June, 2002, she became the anchor of the local newscast of Telemundo in Washington. In Mexico, she explored other venues to use television's potential as a force of social and educational change at the Latin American Institute for Educational Television. She was a citizen counselor for the first non–government controlled elections in Mexican history (1997).

Hoyt writes: "I am always trying to update myself by attending as many seminars, workshops, and conferences as possible. In 2004, I participated in the diversity workshop, Let’s Do it Better, organized by Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. In 2005, I participated in a six-week seminar at the School of Criticism and Theory of Cornell University. I have always combined my news assignments with cultural journalism because.

"I am convinced that the most effective, profound and accessible way to create social and political awareness is through the lens of art. No article, no research, no statistic can explain, convey, and even awaken people’s consciousness, as a book, a film, a painting, or even a song, can.

"My studies at Georgetown University as well as Cornell helped me develop intellectual tools for the interpretation of American society through its writers, philosophers, and films. My bicultural background has proved useful as well in understanding both the Latin and Anglo perspectives on issues of mutual concern for the United States and Mexico.
