La Nación editor-in-chief quits

February 25, 2014

La Nación Editor-in-Chief Yanancy Noguera announced her resignation Tuesday in the second high profile resignation from the news daily in as many months.

Noguera handed in her resignation letter Tuesday morning after 24 years with the publication. She will remain on the roll until March 25, according to a report from the newspaper.

The outgoing editor-in-chief said in her letter that recent changes had reduced her role directing news at the newspaper:

The business has a new work flow under the concept of an integrated newsroom, in which the role of editor-in-chief at La Nación lost relevance and has produced different visions of journalism and management of the newspaper with the corporate management.

Noguera came under criticism in January because her paper canceled a presidential poll days before the Feb. 2 presidential election, although other management likely was involved in the decision.

Investigative Editor Giannina Segnini, best known for her reporting that helped topple two former Costa Rican presidents, and her work in bringing data journalism to Latin America, also resigned after a dispute with La Nación’s management, saying that the spaces for independent journalism at the newspaper had been shrinking during the last two years and especially leading up to the 2104 election.

La Nación Corporate Director Armando González will assume the role in the interim, according to the newspaper.
