Former employees of a now-defunct Pulitzer-Prize winning newspaper have formed a co-operative to publish a new English-language daily.
The Puerto Rico Daily Sun will be available from Wednesday by subscription and at news-stands across the island.
Director Rafael Matos says a portion of the 120 employees who worked at The San Juan Star are involved in the project.
Mr Matos declined to say last night how much money was invested in the project and how much the paper will cost. He expects to provide details at an upcoming press conference.
Puerto Rico has three major Spanish-language newspapers and several smaller ones. It also has a weekly business newspaper in English.
