About Us

About The Americano

The Americano is the only US news site created by Latinas for Latinas. We cover all that matters to our communities, particularly local issues in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, Texas, and Puerto Rico.  We believe an informed electorate is essential for a strong democracy and that the decline of local news throughout the country has adversely impacted civic engagement. As journalists, we are committed to quality local reporting that offers engaging and fact-based news that is relevant to our readers’ everyday lives.


About Courier Newsroom

The Americano is owned and operated by Courier Newsroom, a civic media company. The managing editor of each site, in addition to Courier Newsroom’s editor-in-chief, has sole discretion and control over the editorial process.
