La Conexión, the Triangle’s first Spanish-language newspaper, has been sold. Its owner, Michael Leary Sr., announced the sale of the 13-year-old weekly in Wednesday’s edition.
According to the News and Observer, Leary wrote an open letter to readers saying publishing a weekly newspaper had become a “heartache,” particularly due to a decline in advertising. La Conexión itself also published a story about the new ownership, which includes a picture of the old and new owners.
Terence McEnally III, a Raleigh lawyer who represents Hispanic clients bought the paper for an undisclosed price. The free weekly has a circulation of 20,000.
