Mena hired to lead La Opinión

Reynaldo MenaReynaldo Mena has been tapped to take over La Opinión’s top editor job.  While the paper has not yet officially announced his hire, multiple inside sources confirmed he has landed the position, which has been vacant for 3 months.  That’s when Executive Editor Rubén Keoseyán left the paper to take a job as Vice President of Content at Telemundo’s KVEA-52.

Reynaldo joins La Opinión from Hoy newspaper, Tribune’s Spanish-language weekly in Los Angeles. He has been with Hoy since it launched as a daily in L.A. in March of 2004.  Tribune downsized the publication to a weekly just a few years later.

Prior to Hoy, Reynaldo was editor of Excelsior, the Spanish-language weekly published by the Orange County Register, from 1999 to 2003. He was previously a reporter and assistant editor for Nuevo Mundo, the now defunct Spanish-language weekly published by the San Jose Mercury News.


Update:  La Opinión officially announced his hire and confirmed his start date as Dec. 10.
