La Opinión rolled out an all-new look this week, switching from a broadsheet to a tabloid in print and freshening up the website. There's a now a section of the website devoted to news in English. They already would print some editorials in English.
Here's the introductory note from editorial director Gabriel Lerner, starting with an answer to the question: what is changing? There also is a page pulling together news and reaction to the change under the hashtag #nuevalaopinion. My impression is there's more female skin being displayed on the website, but I can't say whether that's a trend or just an anomaly.
There will now be some daily theme sections: sports and personal finance on Mondays, legal and immigration issues on Tuesdays, health on Wednesdays, a weekend guide on Thursdays, football and cars on Fridays, with family, women and travel pages on weekends. La Opinion is also on Facebook and Twitter.
Going tabloid also means there is a cover story each day. Today's is no surprise: the heat.
