CityLab Latino is now live. The Atlantic and Univision Digital have launched the Spanish-language platform, a spin-off of The Atlantic’s digital publication CityLab.com, almost 5 months after announcing the partnership.
A 50-50 joint venture, the digital pub will feature original stories in Spanish and translations of stories from CityLab.com that cover the most pressing issues facing today’s cities and neighborhoods with the aim “to become, like its sister site CityLab.com, an indispensable resource.”
Juan Pablo Garnham, CityLab Latino’s editor, will work with CityLab.com’s editor Sommer Mathis to oversee the site.
Garnham will based out of Univision’s Newsport in Miami. Writer Natalie Delgadillo will work out of Citylab’s Washington, DC office. They’ll work closely with freelance writers across the country on original reporting on all different topics within the realm of cities.
Before joining Citylab Latino, Garnham was a city hall reporter with El Diario in New York and a staff writer at Qué Pasa magazine in Santiago, Chile.
CityLab Latino is the second Univision Digital partnership with an established media brand. In 2014, Univision teamed up with Variety to launch Variety Latino.
