Honduras Newspaper Owners

Private interests own around 80 percent of Honduras newspapers. Political figures are a prominent part of the Honduran press. Jaime Rosenthal is a Liberal Party leader who ran in the Honduras primary for the 1993 national election. Rosenthal owns El Tiempo, which is considered a liberal paper, and known to criticize the national police and military. As a result, their former newspaper editor, Manuel Gamero, has at times been jailed. Follow the latest political news in our Honduras Politics section of Honduras.com

La Tribuna and La Prensa are considered by most readers to be more centrist than the other Honduras newspapers, although some would say La Prensa is a little more to the right of center. La Prensa is a publication of Grupo OPSA, who publishes Estilo, Estrategia y Negocios, Chicos, and Guia Medica. Grupo OPSA also publishes the Honduras newspapers El Heraldo, ElCeibeno, El Progreseno, and Diez. La Prensa has ties to San Pedro Sula businesses, and its President, Jorge Canahuati Larach, is a member of the family that publishes El Heraldo and Diez. El Heraldo is more conservative than La Prensa, and has been more favorable in its coverage of the military than other Honduras newspapers. El Heraldo often reflects the positions of the National Party. La Tribuna is owned by yet another political figure, Carlos Flores Facusse, who in 1989 made an unsuccessful bid for the presidency before being elected to that post in the November 1997 election. La Tribuna has close ties to the Liberal Party, and to Tegucigalpa's industrial sector.

Former President Rafael Leonardo Callejas was the principal stockholder of the former popular newspaper, El Periodico. El Periodico was known for its conservative views.

Official Newspaper of Honduras

The Country of Honduras recognizes only one newpaper for publicized official notices. It is the government-run newspaper, "La Gaceta" (The Gazette).

Various Honduran administrations have attempted to publish La Gaceta online, but it has yet to become a permanent reality. [Example: La Gaceta Online]

COHEP (the Honduran National Business Council) has been the most consistent in providing fairly recent editions, as well as digital archives of the official newspaper. These editions are located at the COHEP website. Actual photocopies of several editions of La Gaceta have been archived at IAIP, (the Institute for Access to Public Information). These online copies of the newspaper are located at the IAIP website.

Publisher of Honduras Official Newspaper

The National Graphic Arts Company (La Empresa Nacional de Artes Gráficas - ENAG) is the only authorized printer of La Gaceta, which publishes well over 2,500 physical copies a day. The Gazette newspaper can be purchased in the capital of Tegucigalpa, as well as in the cities of San Pedro Sula, Choluteca, La Ceiba and Comayagua.
