Sun-Sentinel Community News Group Launches Four Spanish Weeklies

Posted on June 25, 1999

The Sun-Sentinel Community News Group has announced that it is launching four new Spanish-language community newspapers to serve the needs of readers and advertisers in several Miami-Dade communities. The four new editions of el semanal will complement two existing editions of the community weekly newspaper that has been serving the Hialeah area since February. With the added editions, el semanal will have a circulation of 110,000 each week.

"We're getting a great response to el semanal from readers and advertisers in Hialeah," said Sun-Sentinel Community News Group's Miami-Dade Publisher Justo Rey. "We are confident the combination of quality local coverage and direct home delivery will also make el semanal a success in the new expansion areas."

el semanal currently focuses on providing readers with local information about sports, school news and community events and includes special sections such as Celebraciones, "Buen Provecho," and classifieds. Each edition is tailored to a specific community it serves. Current editions, Hialeah edicion este and edicion oeste, reach all residents of the Northwest Miami-Dade community. New editions, which will launch on July 9, will reach residents of central Miami-Dade, Kendall and Westchester, West Miami Dade and Downtown Miami.
