Nicaragua Dispatch launches English-language publication

nicaragua newspaperEnglish-language rags have come and gone in Nicaragua. I used to write a column for the Nica News in the late 1990s, a monthly lifestyle paper out of Managua. Then there was the Tico Times‘s Nicaragua edition, edited by Granada-based correspondent Tim Rogers (in between his hard-hitting political pieces in TIME, Christian Science Monitor, and other major publications). Now Tim and friends have launched The Nicaragua Dispatch, “to expand readers’ understanding of Nicaragua with original reporting, while stimulating online discussion and debate with a free exchange of opinions and ideas from those who live here and know the country best.” They promise to cover breaking news, politics, human-interest features, business & travel, and exclusive interviews with leading newsmakers. Here’s the newest link on my bookmark bar, a must for any Nicaphile: The Nicaragua Dispatch.
