Founded on the 31st of July in 1998, Calle Ocho News publication emerged as a Hispanic Community Newsprint and digital media outlet in the South Florida Miami Metropolitan Area. Mr. Luis Thomas Pardo founded this family-owned business with Mrs. Marta Rosa Rosell as the presidential lead. Both natives from Cuba began their venture from the Cuban market publication but soon became experts and expanded their support to all Hispanic Communities that grew from 4.4 percent in 1970 to 17.6 percent in 2016. The number is only expected to grow as demographers predict one-third of all children in the United States will be Latino by 2050.
The platform aims to bridge cultural gaps among different nationalities and allow them to blend in with the truest essence of Miami. The newsprint and digital platform encourages connection, communication, and inspiration for the entrepreneurial spirit. They also work to preserve the art and culture of Latin America.
A spokesperson from the advertisement department stated, “From the Cubans to the Argentinians, Brazilians, Colombians, Costa Ricans, Dominicans, Guatemalans, Hondurans, Mexicans, Nicaraguans, Panamanians, Puerto Ricans, and Venezuelans, Calle Oche News represents the whole of the Latin American culture in the Miami Dade County. We’re thankful to the readers who have made us the leading Spanish Community Newspaper in all of South Florida. We give back to the public by allowing them to advertise to increase their exposure —letting our readers engage with your business, products, or services.”
Apart from the daily news, Calle Ocho is a platform people can use to host events, publish opinions, and share ideas or stories. The platform receives over 200 thousand monthly impressions. To advertise businesses, services, products, or work in the Calle Ocho News online and offline editions in English or Spanish, refer to their Media Kit.
Calle Ocho News is distributed bi-weekly in many areas across Miami. Alternatively, readers can read their digital content on their official website.
