ImpreMedia, the No.1 Hispanic news and information company in the U.S. in online and print, today announced agreements with the Spanish-language publications of The McClatchy Company that will create the largest online and print advertising platform in the nation serving the Hispanic market.

Promising an efficient one-stop solution to reach 18 top U.S. Hispanic markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Fort Worth/Dallas, Houston, Chicago, the Central Valley of California and San Francisco, the companies will work collaboratively with each other to offer advertisers an effective way to reach a National Hispanic audience unmatched by any other Hispanic marketing vehicle. The parties will leverage their complementary strengths in offering the new platform to the marketplace and support it through their individual sales, marketing and production departments.

“McClatchy is very pleased to be involved in this innovative network. Our Spanish-language products bring great audience reach to the equation, and we look forward to offering our advertisers a national buy,” said Frank Whittaker, McClatchy Vice President of Operations.

ImpreMedia’s nationally distributed, general interest magazine, Vista, extends its reach to a total 17 markets representing 66% of the U.S. Hispanic population.
