For Positive News in Argentina – Noticias Positivas – 2009 was a great year; a time of remarkable growth and achievements.
Founder and director Andrea MÈndez Brandam and editor Graciela Melgarejo, decided it was time to bring positive news to even more people. The objective: to publish a supplement in Clar’n, the most popular daily newspaper in Argentina.
The task was not easy but Andrea put a competent team together, which was both international and intergenerational. With sponsors secured, the plan became a reality and Clar’n, alongside all others involved, understood the importance of the publication – and 315,000 copies of the eight-page supplement were released across the country. “The public need to know that people all around the world are making change happen,” says Andrea.
Meanwhile, all is set for a fourth season of the Noticias Positivas radio show at Radio Palermo. Listeners can stream the programme live from the Noticias Positivas website, as well as being able to watch it, thanks to the studio camera.
Podcasts of the shows are also available. In addition, radio stations from all over the world are able to download and broadcast the edited show for free, with more than 150 stations across Argentina already airing the weekly show.
