Monday, February 8, 2016 was a good day for Spanish-language media.
The New York Times officially announced what had been the worst kept secret in town: The launch of a Spanish-language Website to “offer the best of our journalism for a Spanish-speaking audience.”
In a note to readers, editor Lydia Polgreen introduced the Spanish-language site, adding it will not only include translated material from the New York Times, but original stories by a growing team of editors and reporters, mostly based in Mexico. Polgreen also tweeted the following photo of a very-happy-looking team in what looks like a tiny office:

This blogger promptly favorited the site, followed everyone involved and even signed up to receive The New York Times en Español newsletter, mostly because it features a section called Reposado, which I believe has something to do with tequila, so ¡Yay!
So… ¡Salud! y ¡Que viva el Niuyortáims en español!
