El Diario La Prensa
, the venerable Hispanic newspaper founded in 1913, is getting a fresh new look and format intended to make the country’s oldest Spanish daily more engaging for a

In addition to a new cover design, the new format for the New York-based tabloid daily centers on five main editorial categories, including News, You and
