AL DÍA, a Latino+ multicultural news organization based in Philadelphia, has launched a digital and print title called AL DÍA Magazine.
The glossy multi-cultural magazine, which will run from 40 to 60 pages, is written in "English+."
Articles will be accompanied by QR codes enabling readers to read the content online in American English or Standard U.S. Spanish.
“AL DÍA has evolved over its 29 year history,” says publisher Hernán Guaracao. “What started as a newsletter in my home, evolved into a weekly newspaper and now a magazine.”
Guaracao adds, “Shifting U.S. demographics, increased online readership, shrinking ad budgets and the high cost of print manufacturing and distribution helped drive the change.”
Focusing on Philadelphia and the mid-Atlantic states, the new publication will include content on politics, education, leadership and culture. This will take the form of news analysis and summaries, op-eds, and feature articles.
The first issue focuses on Cherelle Parker and David Oh, two candidates for Philadelphia’s mayoralty.
A one-year membership also includes VIP invites to news events.
