CADENA CAPRILES NEW MULTIMEDIA INTEGRATED NEWSROOM IN CARACAS

Files under General | Apr 10th

Still is a work in progress but last Friday, the editors and reporters of Cadena Capriles left the old building in downtown Caracas and landed in a new state-of-the-art multimedia integrated newsroom in La Urbina.

These are the first pictures of one of the most modern a futuristic newsroom in Latin America.

This is a dream that started one night in Goteborg, Sweden, having dinner during the 2008 World Newspaper Congress with the CEO of Cadena Capriles, Miguel Angel Capriles, and editorial director of the group, Nathalie Alvaray, now its media vice president.

This dream is now a reality thanks to the work and help of many people, specially the local engineer Gustavo Torres and our INNOVATION Media Architect Consultants, Luis Calau and Vicente Riera.

This is the new building.

The new facility will be fully operational in May but as you can see right now people are enjoying the space and work, including a new cafeteria.

Cadena Capriles is the publisher of three leading newspapers: ULTIMAS NOTICIAS (general news quality popular), LIDER (sports) and EL MUNDO (business), plus several magazines and online news operations.

All these journalists (more than 330 with 220 desks) work now together in a fantastic open-space 1.000 square meters newsroom under the umbrella of a Multimedia Superdesk.

 

During these past four years INNOVATION has produced several multimedia integration editorial, commercial and newsroom management models and manuals, designed the integrated multimedia newsroom and done extensive in-house training.

More information, pictures and videos in the next few days.

It was my first hotel in Caracas more than 20 year ago.

A very bad hotel, then and now.

The Guardian has today a marvelous and hilarious dispatch from Caracas about the new management.

It’s now the ALBA Caracas hotel

Chavez took over, so expect the worst.
