AOL Latino, who supplies the content?

Several print media outlets are contributing content to AOL Latino, America Online's new Spanish-language service, launched on October 1st. People en español, also owned by AOL Time Warner, has three full time staffers providing daily content to AOL Latino. The People en español team will produce a mix of original programming and content taken from their magazine, People en español´s Lauren Kuschner says.

Los Angeles newspaper La Opinión and New York daily el diario/La Prensa will contribute news, sports and entertainment content. Other content providers are Univisión, Knight Ridder and the Spanish versions of the BBC service, Consumer Reports and National Footbal League. Out of AOL's 25.4 million U.S. subscribers, 2.3 million are Hispanics. Most Hispanic internet users speak English.
