New Service Connects Hispanic Media with Experts

Conectando Periodistas is a free subscription service that debuted last month to help connect Hispanic journalists with expert sources for their stories.

Today, the service has launched a website where journalists can post their requests which is then distributed in a daily email alert to subscribers. If the subscriber is a match, then he or she can respond directly to the reporter.

Since its launch last month,  the service says that it has received requests from reporters from Hispanic media outlets including Univision, EFE America, El Diario/La Prensa, Cosmopolitan Latina, and La Opinion and more than 300 experts have subscribed.

In addition to helping Spanish-speaking journalists, Conectando Periodistas also assists English-speaking journalists find Latino sources. Requests from journalists can be submitted anonymously.
