Diario Libre, the leading newspaper in the Dominican Republic, announced its managing editor, Inés Aizpún is promoted to executive editor. Aizpún is the director of the digital Diario Libre. At the printed newspaper, she replaces Adriano Miguel Tejada, who is retiring.
Aizpún becomes the first woman to direct a major daily in the Dominican Republic. She is a Spanish journalist who came to work in the Dominican Republic in 1987 in Ultima Hora, an afternoon newspaper. She later joined Rumbo newsweekly magazine in 1994.
