First steps
On June 16, 1959, only six months after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, the first news with the PL abbreviation circulated out of Havana into the world. Prensa Latina News Agency was thus born amid the revolutionary effervescence of those days, with the intention of reporting on what was really happening in Cuba, to give the world a vision of Latin America different to those offered by big media monopolies of the time.

In the 21st century
Half a century after its foundation, Prensa Latina has a solid, modern structure allowing it to successfully insert itself in the complex, competitive world of international news agencies.

A team of editors, writers, reporters, photographers, as well as correspondents and stringers worldwide contribute to PL news services, supported by highly qualified technicians and engineers who make possible that PL messages on the most diverse issues reach the world.

Over 400 dispatches comprise the world news service PL transmits each day in Spanish, English, Portuguese, Italian, Russian and Turkish.
