“Stop the presses – San Antonio’s bilingual language newspaper, La Prensa, is back.

A week after Publisher Nina Duran announced that the paper her father had owned since 1989 was folding immediately, La Prensa Texas, a rebranded version of the San Antonio staple, found its way to newsstands on Sunday thanks to Steve Duran, her brother, who borrowed from his retirement savings to keep the presses running.

Steve Duran re-hired three former La Prensa staffers and brought in four new people to the publication headquartered at the Westside Development Corporation. He renamed the publication La Prensa Texas to reflect his goal – and his father’s – of taking the paper statewide. A website is in the works.

On Sunday, Steve Duran began delivering the latest edition of La Prensa Texas to convenience stores, offices, and clinics throughout the South and West sides – right on schedule.”
