El Vocero

El Vocero is a Puerto Rican newspaper that is published in the Puerta De Tierra barrio, in the city of San Juan.

Published since the 1970s, El Vocero was at first, the third of the four large Puerto Rico newspapers, trailing El Mundo[?] and El Nuevo Dia (then El Dia), and leading El Reportero[?] in sales. With the temporary demise in the late 1980s of El Mundo, El Vocero became even more popular, becoming the country's second largest newspaper.

For most of it's history, El Vocero was known as a sensasionalist newspaper that carried all the violent news, such as murders, drug arrests, rapes and children kidnappings. However, in the early 2000s, with a new board of directors, the newspaper has changed it's direction, carrying more political news and news about the situation in Vieques than crime information.

In addition to it's regular news section, El Vocero also has Business, Religion, show business and sports sections.

El Vocero reaches every city in Puerto Rico and it also has New York, Miami and Chicago editions.
