On the 14th and 15th of Septmeber both the El Nuevo Dia and Primera Hora announced the formation of GFR Media Group. As always, analyzing what was said (or not said), reveals interesting details about the new business. Instead of providing my own analysis this time, all I'm going to do is dissect their announcement from their own newspapers and ask the big questions.
In all accounts about the formation of GFR Media Group, they report that "Además, se creará una agencia de noticias interna para generar contenidos 24/7 que nutran múltiples plataformas mediáticas." El Nuevo Dia and Primera Hora are already on the web, Facebook, and Twitter. What else could be considered a platform for 24/7 news?
As far as the rest of the leadership team for GFR Media Group, they announced that: "En tanto, Agustín Meizoso ocupa el puesto de Principal Oficial de Operaciones; Juan Mario Álvarez, el de Principal Oficial de Nuevos Negocios; y Fernando Samaniego, el de Principal Oficial Digital."
