Prensa Arizona was set to start publishing in print and online on April 26, the Arizona Republic reported.
A lot of the employees for the Spanish-language paper came from Prensa Hispana, which published its last issue on April 4, the Republic reported. Prensa Hispana and the new Prensa Arizona did not provide details behind the shuttering of Prensa Hispana, the Republic says.
“We are very excited with the launching of this totally new and different publication in the Spanish market,” said General Manager Lety Garcia in a statement, the Republic reported. “This will be a newspaper not only of news, but of special reports, in-depth investigations, free journalism and lots of value."
