Daily La Nación Celebrates 60 Years

October 20, 2006

Costa Rica s most prestigious daily newspaper, La Nación, celebrated its 60th anniversary with a special 128-page supplement last week that gave its readers a chance to glance back 60 years in Costa Rican history.

Highlights include La Nación s first front page printed Oct. 12, 1946, chock full of headlines in a now-antique font and two black-and-white photos.

The rest of the supplement follows the paper s evolution to a modern, colorful layout and is sprinkled with headlines like Total Blockade Against Cuba Oct. 23, 1962, and Two Men Yesterday Walked on the Moon July 21, 1969.

In an introductory letter, director Alejandro Urbina said the pages are vital history, a mix of chains of events and fortuitous events, collected and noted by many journalists and a plethora of all types of workers who are in the service of communication and freedom.

In addition, the newspaper s Sunday magazine, Proa, this week was dedicated to the history of La Nación and snapshots of Costa Rica yesterday and today.

La Nación estimates the paper is read by 491,892 people every day, according to its Web site.
