'NY Daily News' Closes Its Spanish-Language Weekly, 'Hora Hispana'

Posted: May 14, 2012


The New York Daily News has shut down its weekly Spanish-language publication, Hora Hispana, just a little over a year after relaunching it.

Maite Junco, who oversaw Hora Hispana and edited the paper's monthly "Viva" section (as well as running the Latino vertical of nydailynews.com) has been let go, as have Hora Hispana editor Rodolfo Quebleen and sales rep Jose Santiago.

The News will continue to publish "Viva," a spokesman for the paper confirmed, but it is unclear who will produce it from now on.

Hora Hispana "was discontinued because there wasn't enough advertising to support it," said the spokesman. "But the Daily News remains committed to covering issues that are important to the Hispanic community."

These changes are the latest in what appears to be a slow but steady house-cleaning under editor-in-chief Colin Myler, the ex-News Corp. lieutenant who's now in his fifth month on the job, after the phone-hacking scandal in the U.K. killed the last paper he edited, News of the World.
