Jesús Eduardo Corso Crispino,[1] popularly known as Eduardo J. Corso (1 September 1920 – 5 December 2012) was a Uruguayan lawyer, agricultural journalist and writer. Articles he wrote were published in magazines and newspapers such as El País and Marcha, and he was a conservative. According to El País, Corso was known for his "brutal" use of language, which earned him some friends and enemies.[2]


Corso was born on 1 September 1920 in San Ramón, Canelones Department, Uruguay. He was a supporter of the Civic Union, a small Uruguayan political party.[3] He was the successor of Salvador García Pintos for the "Field Journal" radio station in 1949, and later worked for Radio Rural, Sarandí, Oriental, and El Espectador.[2]

Corso was a mainstay of the agricultural radio sector for over 50 years.[3] Corso was also a journalist: his articles were published in El País, La Mañana, El Diario, Últimas Noticias and Marcha.[2] Corso was a devout Catholic[4] and his Christian faith bore the stamp of clear conservatism. In 2009, Corso had spent a total of sixty years as a radio journalist and he left the radio station he spent the past thirty years with.[3]

According to El País, Corso often used "brutal" language, which earned him friends and enemies.[2] During his career, despite his conservative stance, he never hesitated to express his opinions, which caused some criticism.[2] When democracy returned in 1985, Corso protested against the amnesty granted by Julio María Sanguinetti (which had the backing of most political parties) to the Tupamaros.[1]

He died on 5 December 2012. He is buried at San Ramón Cemetery.[2]


His brother Antonio Corso (1916—1985) was a bishop[2][5] of Punta del Este.[6]

Married to María Barreto, he had three children: Eduardo, María Cecilia and Ana Rosa.
