Against a background of cuts and layoffs in the Spanish media, The Huffington Post’s Spanish counterpart El Huffington Post was launched in Madrid yesterday, marking the latest step in the brand’s global expansion.

The launch represents a fusion between traditional and new media brands. As Bloomberg Businessweek reports, El Huffington Post is being produced from the offices of Spain’s leading newspaper El País, and is 50% owned by El País’s parent company Prisa.

Spanish weekly A pie de calle recently hit the streets of Madrid with a circulation of 100,000 copies, reported on Tuesday. Although it currently only serves Madrid's community, the 24-pages free weekly is aiming to have 12 local editions by 2011.

The newspaper was created as an alternative to the existing local media outlets, which are "very focused on the small municipality or district," said director Concha Minguela to Periodista Digital. "There has never been a regional newspaper in a broader context such as in Galicia La Voz accompanied by several local supplements," she explained.

The newspaper also plans to increase its circulation to 500,000 copies and expand its distribution to Barcelona, Sevilla, Bilbao and Valencia, pointed out.

People in Spain like to read newspapers, and the growing tendency is to read them online rather than their print version, according to the 2010 Report of the Digital Content Industry published by Spain's National Observatory of Telecomunications and Information Society.

In fact, 49.7 percent of the population reads newspapers online mostly through computers. The study showed that only 7.1 percent of the users access daily publications with mobile devices.

The report also revealed that the economic crisis has reduced newspapers' advertising revenue from €1,461 million in 2007 to €883.7 million in 2009, leaving the newspaper sales as the main source of revenue with €1.215 million.

In 2009, newspapers represented 41.1 percent of the publishing sector overall income, calculated in €7.128 million, pointed out. This means that newspapers brought €2.929 million into Spain's publishing industry.
