Former employees of Hoy newspaper in NY, which was shut down by owner ImpreMedia in December, have regrouped and are launching NY Al Día. The new Spanish-language daily has a start date of April 20. It is scheduled to be a 28-page tabloid, with a circulation of 20,000 and a newsstand cost of 40 cents.
According to Portada, the newspaper is currently headquartered in Long Island, but will soon move its offices to Midtown Manhattan. The initial staff of 13 former Hoy NY employees includes General Manager Juan Carlos Sánchez, Editor Vicglamar Torres, Senior Account Executive Francisca Rivas and Production Manager Ivette Chestaro. All employees will share ownership of the publication.
