With the ever-increasing trend to deliver news online, the good old newspaper, printed on paper, which provided readers with the latest local, national and international news for centuries, seems to be on the way out. Around the globe newspaper publishers and other print media adapted to changes in technology and reader’s demands and today offer news stories and other information seemingly every second online.
While in Peru the major printed newspapers all have online editions as well where readers find the latest news or can flick through a digital version of the latest edition free, buying a “physical” newspaper for a few Soles at the little bodega around the corner, at one of the many kiosks or from vendors at intersections is still highly popular.
And the choice is wide ranging from well-respected and reputable broadsheets which provide readers with a comprehensive coverage of national and international daily news to countless tabloids full of sensational stories, famous people, big headlines and lots of photos.
To give you an overview, find below a selection of Peruvian newspapers which are distributed across the country.
