Hoy Nueva York stops print publication

The difficult economy has shut down print publication of another Spanish-language newspaper.
Hoy Nueva York's publisher, Rossana Rosado, said Tuesday that all but four of the newspaper's 20 staffers have been let go and that the publication will continue only on the Internet.
Rosado, who also is publisher and chief executive officer of El Diario/La Prensa in New York, said Hoy's diminished staff will continue to focus on local coverage and its reports will be supplemented by material from other ImpreMedia LLC publications.
Beside El Diario/La Prensa, ImpreMedia also publishes La Opinion in Los Angeles and several other Spanish-language publications.
Hoy editor Javier Castano said he and his staffers were fired Tuesday without notice from the 31,000-circulation paper, which published Monday through Friday. Castano said falling advertising revenue and the poor economy contributed to the demise of Hoy (pronounced "oi"), which had been in circulation for a decade.
Another Spanish-language paper in New York, 24 Horas, went out of business in June.
