The Times they are a Changin’

Tiempos del Mundo, the international newspaper covering U.S. Hispanic and Latin American affairs, announced last week the decision to cease publishing a print edition:

“There’s really a better business case to be made for sustaining an online publication, particularly when you consider the international reach of Tiempos del Mundo,” said Jonathan Slevin, a spokesperson for TDM.

Slevin also cited the changing habits of readers for the decision, saying that increasingly, they are turning to the Internet to receive their news.

He also said that there are staffing cutbacks underway, “although the who and the where are yet to be determined.”

While the brand will stay distinct from its affiliate company UPI, the two entities will share editorial and advertising resources. The last print issue of Tiempos del Mundo will be published on June 28th.
