Extra Bilingual Newspaper

Extra logo color blackExtra Bilingual Newspaper has been around the city of Chicago for over 30 years, giving first starts to some well-known journalists. The paper, published weekly on Fridays, covers everything going on in the city of Chicago and then some, focused on the Latino side of the issues. Covering local concerts and entertainment, the political realm and even the trials and tribulations of particular Latino communities, Extra has gone above and beyond to stay in the light of Latinos’ path. Appealing to both the Spanish- or English-only readers, stories are typically written in English and translated into Spanish, appealing to a wider audience.

I began working for Extra as a copy editor and freelancer, helping where I could lend a hand. In 2011, I was recruited to join the team as the managing editor and editorial director, taking charge on managing and creating content for the paper, website, newsletter and social media outlets. With my team of writers, Extra was a pleasant and enjoyable working experience.
