Tuesday, October 25, 2016 A message to our readersThe Buenos Aires Herald, the only English-language daily in Latin America, will become a weekly as from next November 4, its main shareholder the Indalo Group announced last weekend. Last September 15, the Herald published an anniversary edition to mark its 140 years, to which its usual columnists, former editors, top politicians from across the political spectrum, human rights leaders, ambassadors and pundits all contributed. The Herald is the fourth-oldest newspaper in the country but its last edition as a daily comes out tomorrow. The decision to publish a weekly means a major downsizing of a permanent staff of 21 between journalists and designers. In mid-year the Sindicato de Prensa de Buenos Aires press association estimated around 2,000 job losses nationwide.
