MANILA, Philippines — Spanish is the second-most spoken language in the world, and the Philippines certainly has its own fair share of Spanish speakers. In order to bring them together, La Jornada Filipina was launched today.
The publication will be providing local news coverage to the Hispanic community and will be covering wide range of topics such as arts, culture, entertainment, technology and travel. In order to reach non-Spanish-speaking Filipinos, La Jornada Filipina will also be published in English.
“I identify as Hispanic Filipino myself, and I was disappointed that there are no media outlets available that cater to me. I knew then that it was the right time to do it myself,” said Arvyn Cerézo, the Editor-In-Chief of the publication. “I hope that the publication will improve the state of Spanish in the country,” Cerézo added.

La Jornada Filipina in English is the English version of the first and largest Spanish-language news magazine in the Philippines. It aims to deliver news and insights in both Spanish and English, to bring together the local Hispanic community, and promote Spanish in the Philippines.
La Jornada Filipina is an independent media company.

In general, about 80% of our revenue comes from advertising and about 20% from donations. Our business model — and our advocacy journalism — depends more on your financial support than other news businesses do. If your budget allows for it, please make a contribution. We do charge advertisers for the ability to reach and engage with our audiences. That revenue stream depends less on the size of our audience than it does on the local economy, which drives advertising dollars. As always, with questions or comments, please contact us here.
