--News Direct--

AL DÍA, a Philadelphia-based Latino+ multicultural, multimedia professional news organization, has launched AL DÍA Magazine, a membership-based digital and print publication and local news organization.

The launch coincides with the 30th Anniversary of the popular Local News Organization, launched as a home-based publication in the founder’s home in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1994.

The AL DÍA Magazine —focused on the Best of the American Multicultural Experience, as its slogan reads —includes News Analysis & Summaries, Op-Ed commentary, plus Feature articles on Politics, Education, Leadership, Cultura, and beyond— among other innovative Content Initiatives.

The 40 to 60-page magazine also contains news covering Metro Áreas in the Mid-Atlantic States & Eastern Seaboard in the U.S.— and its content will reside on the News Portal

For the first time in the region’s history, a former 100 percent Spanish-language publication —first printed as an eight-page newsletter, and later in black and white on newsprint stock, published out of the Family’s home— will be printed in deluxe hard copy, Magazine format, on glossy paper, in what the company calls “English+ from North America”— factually the “Lingua Franca” of the United States.

Each article in the print version will nevertheless contain a QR Code that enables the readers to access all the content online, both in American English and, additionally, in “Standard U.S. Spanish,” the company added.

AL DIA is preparing a Deluxe Edition dedicated to the inauguration of the 100th Mayor of the City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the first-ever female Mayor of the Cradle of the American Democracy, Hon. Cherelle Parker (D).

Shifting U.S. demographics, increased online readership, mobile proliferation, and shrinking newspaper business and ad budgets, plus the high cost of print manufacturing and distribution, helped drive the evolution of AL DÍA from a weekly newsprint tab newspaper to a full Magazine format in “English+”

AL DÍA has continuously evolved over its 30-year history,” publisher Hernán Guaracao explains.

“What started as a newsletter printed in my home in North Philly, where my now deceased wife Elizabeth and I also raised our two daughters, Gabriela Andrea, and Anna Felicia, eventually grew into a weekly newspaper in the Hispanic and Multicultural neighborhood in Olney, Upper North Philadelphia, our first home in the City in 1991. And now it has grown into a multimedia news organization, with a glossy magazine, housed in a high rise in Philadelphia, PA, on Market Street West, in Wall Street, New York City, and Wilmington, DE,” Guaracao added.

The unique journalist-owned and operated news organization is located at 1835 Market Street, amid the bustling Business and Political Center of Philadelphia, the First Capital of the United States.

The Founder, Owner, CEO & Current Editor-In-Chief, was an unemployed professional journalist with a Master’s Degree in Journalism from the University of Iowa, in Iowa City, who couldn’t land a job in a newsroom in Philadelphia in 1991.

In addition to its Magazine, Video & Podcast Platforms, AL DÍA News Media will provide under his direction diverse services for its multicultural and multiracial audience.

The company will continue to host at least 12 events a year (branded as #ALDÍALive) that enhance the more accurate depiction and understanding of the Americans of U.S. Latino and Multicultural Experience, in this first part of the 21st Century.

The strategic move was triggered by increased multiculturalism in this early part of the new century, the current empowerment of women trends, and other disadvantaged communities, all within the frame of an increasingly diverse Global Center the Eastern Seaboard has always been— from New York City to Miami, all with Unique Urban Centers inserted into the Global Economy.

Its signature event is #ALDIArchetypes, a U.S. National Award Celebration of #Latino+Multicultural Leaders in the 6 Most Important professional areas of human endeavors.

It honors the Memory of Ambassador Manuel Torres — the first Diplomat from a Latin American Nation in the U.S.

He was buried in Old City Philadelphia in 1822 — 200+ years ago — after being one of its most prestigious and known residents for 26 years.
