Publisher & CEO, El Diario/La Prensa
Rossana Rosado is the Publisher and CEO of El Diario/La Prensa, the oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper in the United States.
From 1995 to 1999, she was Editor in Chief of the paper and in 1999 she became the first Latina, and one of just a few women in the U.S., to hold the position of Publisher and CEO of a major newspaper.
Ms. Rosado started her career as a reporter at the paper in 1983, covering City Hall. Five years later she left to be a producer at WPIX/Channel 11. She then went to work at the New York City Health and Hospitals Corp., serving under both the Dinkins and Guiliani administrations. When Ms. Rosado returned to El Diario in 1995 as editor in chief, it was with an eye toward making the paper the voice for New York's Latino community.
She is the recipient of several prestigious awards including an Emmy, The New York State Broadcaster's Award, and The Folio Award for programming geared to the Long Island community. She serves on the boards of Acción New York, American Red Cross, Caribbean Cultural Center, Inwood House, Pace University Board of Trustees, Partnership for a Drug Free America, St. Christopher's, and United Way of New York City.
Ms. Rosado received a B.A. in Journalism from Pace University.
