El Heraldo de Compton a viable Spanish-language voice for Compton and neighboring cities in Southeast LA County


(COMPTON MNS) — It has been a long time in coming, but Compton’s Spanish-speaking community now has the services of a Spanish-language newspaper — El Heraldo de Compton, to keep abreast of the city’s news and events. Spanish-language-only residents will no longer have to hear what goes on in Compton second-hand.

“Now our Spanish-language citizens can read the local news for themselves on the first account,” said publisher Jarrette Fellows, Jr, who also owns the Compton Herald online newspaper. Both media enterprises comprise Metropolis Media.

El Heraldo de Compton begins as a monthy, then move to a bi-weekly by the end of 2017, and ultimately weekly by March 2018. El Heraldo de Compton is available free at multiple locations in the city at businesses, restaurants, supermarkets, liquor & delicatessens, local parks, and churches.

Latino residents comprise more than 60 percent of the city’s population and many are proficient in Spanish only and therefore needed a “voice” to represent their interests and concerns — a newspaper of their own. The city’s Latino business community, likewise has grown at an exponential rate and needed a professional newspaper to market and promote its wares.

El Heraldo de Compton also will reach beyond Compton to Lynwood, Paramount, Southgate, Carson, Downey, Gardena, and South L.A. with news, business, sports, entertainment, religion, and special features from south of the border in Mexico and Central America.

El Heraldo de Compton’s motto is “News Local Communities Can Use,” presented objectively, fairly, and accurately in accordance with the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which assures freedom of the press, the cornerstone of a free democracy.

Readers can count on El Heraldo de Compton to deliver the truth and serve as a direct voice for the community through “Letters to El Heraldo de Compton.”
