Hispanic PR Wire and PR Newswire launch Spanish-language expert and media network ProfNet en Español


NEW YORK, NY — Following several years in development, Hispanic PR Wire and PR Newswire today unveiled the Spanish-language expert and media network service ProfNet en Español.  The service expands PRN’s popular service for scores of  Spanish-speaking media and communications professionals that wish to engage and communicate on a wide variety of story interview topics.

“ProfNet has been the gold standard since 1994 in enabling communications professionals to build relationships with reporters and helping the media community find sources for articles and TV segments,” said Jessica Alas, media relations director for Hispanic PR Wire, a division of PR Newswire. “In launching ProfNet en Español, we are extending this industry-leading product to the thousands of Spanish-language media and communications professionals in the U.S. in order to help them forge the same relationships that have resulted in countless articles and opportunities for their English-speaking counterparts.”

For communications professionals, ProfNet en Español provides access to the approximately 5,000 Spanish-language media contacts on Hispanic PR Wire’s press list that are looking for sources for articles, interviews and discussions. Through a system of  queries (“avisos”), journalists will be able to directly connect with  Spanish-speaking communicators about media opportunities.

“I am excited about the idea of ProfNet en Español because it will be an enormous help. One always needs to get in touch with experts to get an informed opinion for articles and ProfNet is famous for providing trustworthy sources; the fact that now we’ll have Spanish-speaking experts available will not only save us the time that we spent translating their quotes, but it’ll also guarantee access to professionals who are familiar with the Spanish-speaking market “, Cristina Mella, founder of Latino Living; www.cristinamella.com
