FIVE DECADES OF NEWS

December 22, 2006

Improvements Galore: The Tico Times turned 50 this year – and celebrated the milestone with a complete print redesign launched in January –just in time for the February presidential elections – and a corresponding Web site overhaul launched in November. What’s more, The Nica Times doubled in size from four to eight pages, just in time for November’s presidential elections in Nicaragua. The new “Reaching Out” education program, a partnership with other businesses and the Public Education Ministry, helped more than 2,000 high-school students use the newspaper as they learn English, and the “Well-Informed Guest Program” brought the paper to VIP rooms of select hotels. Above, General Manager Abby Daniell (left) joins Publisher Dery Dyer in blowing out the candles during the newspaper’s anniversary party in May.
