It is born ‘The Newspaper of Spain‘, the new printed and digital newspaper with national coverage that will allow the company that presides Javier Moll make the leap to Madrid after consolidating itself as the leading group for regional and local information in Spain.
Directed by the journalist Fernando Garea and from a firm commitment to quality information, the new newspaper is called to contribute to territorial structuring and progress of our society.
‘El Periódico de España’ arrives in 2021 to account for the change of cycle that has opened in the country and to accompany the political, social and economic transformations that are beginning to emerge. At a time when the territories are demanding to have more voice; when some flags turn on consensus values; When political options grow and dialogue is a pressing need, a newspaper appears to pick up the sign of the new times.
A project that will work for democracy from rigor, but also from the defense of equality, plurality and freedom through its pages. Some principles that already appear in our Constitution and that, far from losing force, have become more necessary than ever, at a difficult time for cohesion and political stability, but where common struggles have arisen and a social conscience towards today’s priority issues such as sustainability or women’s rights.
Reflection of an era
This commitment by Prensa Ibérica to national information comes at a historic moment. This October 12, the day of the National Holiday, ‘El Periódico de España’ takes to the streets, which breaks through a year and a half after the pandemic broke all known schemes, from health to scientific through economic.
The new headend will be witness and speaker of the milestones in this change of cycle and will be a pioneer in how to do it: through an unprecedented experience in the journalistic world, with a project that, instead of being implanted in Madrid and making its way through delegations, has an established territorial roots and with an important network of headers throughout the country. A newspaper that was born with a vocation to listen and that aims to give a voice to the information that remains outside the capital, taking advantage of all the potential offered by the group’s staff of journalists, made up of more 1,200 professionals. A team that, from different boats, will row to offer a quality newspaper and will allow to illuminate a new product.
The team of ‘El Periódico de España’ will work for information above any other field and beyond any interest, with independence and rigor, and focusing the work of journalists on providing exclusives, scoops and their own perspectives. The objective is to offer the reader an added value that transcends the present. All this without giving up the last minute, an essential element for this newspaper, which has a powerful team to narrate live what happens in every moment.
One of the main challenges of the new medium will consist precisely in telling the news before, but also in making a difference in how: do it in an original way, surprising the reader, generating interest and opening new sources of discussion in public life.
The journalistic approach in the background will pivot on a second gear that allows editors to break free from the dictatorship of immediacy and focus on why: what happens when everything is happening, and what will happen when the present still seems uncertain .
A place to return to
The new medium will also have a paper version, on sale at newsstands in Madrid from Monday to Friday, and the contents elaborated in the writing can also be read on the pages of the 24 group headings. Faced with the speed of information, the priority will be to deliver news that marks the future, turning paper into a place to return to.
With its writing in the center of the capital, close to Cibeles and the Congress of Deputies, ‘El Periódico de España’ seeks to be a reunion place. For this, it has been implemented a platform that allows content to be shared from the 25 editorial offices of Prensa Ibérica with the aim of getting the most out of journalistic work. These synergies will allow the exchange of valuable information from the different territories.
