HuffPost Mexico will debut in September of 2016.
The new Spanish-language site, whose editors and reporters will be based in Mexico City, will replace the U.S. Spanish-language portal Voces, which was shut down earlier this year.
In January, when probed about the reasons for the Voces shutdown, a company spokesperson acknowledged they were “transferring HuffPost Voces to HuffPost Mexico, a new edition we’re preparing to launch that will serve our Spanish-speaking audience in Latin America.”
At the time, the spokesperson would not respond to questions about their Spanish-speaking audience in the U.S.
The Huffington Post launched its first international edition in May 2011, expanding into 15 markets in five years, before eliminating Voces.
