The largest and longest running Spanish newspaper in New York, El Diario-La Prensa, shook up their editorial department today with the appointment of Erica Gonzalez to executive editor and Carmen Villavicencio to managing editor. Gonzalez has been with El Diario since 2006 when she served as opinion page editor and Villavicencio worked as the paper’s news editor prior to this promotion. El Diario publisher Rossana Rosado has little doubt that the publication is in good hands with Gonzalez.
El Diario has experienced excellent audience growth over the course of the years, introducing new multimedia initiatives, sharpening its political coverage and expanding its editorial sections. Our unique and relevant content is what keeps our audience engaged. Erica has been an important part of that effort. I have every confidence that El Diario ’s growth will continue under her leadership.
Before joining El Diario, Gonzalez was as a reporter for the New York Post, editor for SoloElla.com, and was director of communications for the New York City Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs. Villavicencio, who will work under Gonzalez and oversee content and newsroom coverage, previously worked at Hora Hispana, Noticias del Mundo and Diario el Universo.
