Buenos Aires Herald to Shut Down after 140 Years

Latin America’s oldest English-language daily, the Buenos Aires Herald, announced its closure this week, ending an impressive 140-year run.

“There’s not much to say right now to be honest. We have been told the last edition was this Friday’s. No more to add at this point,” said News editor James Grainger on Twitter.

The paper cited modifications to government-paid advertising, distribution, and the recession in Argentina as reasons for its shutdown.

“For the journalists and the fighters for Argentine human rights, the Buenos Aires Herald was a myth. So its final closure was a hard blow,” said Carlos Cué, El País correspondent in Buenos Aires.
