The Buenos Aires Herald is an English language daily newspaper from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The official slogan is A World of Information in a few words.



Under the original name of The Buenos Ayres Herald, it was founded in 1876 by Scottish immigrant William Cathcart. At first it consisted of a single sheet with advertising on the front and mostly shipping coverage on the back. When Cathcart sold the paper a year later, it changed from a weekly to a daily format, now focusing on more typical newspaper content, but always with a large shipping section.

Its political position included an opposition role against the military regime between 1976 and 1983. As a result the newspaper was besieged by threats and the staff writer Andrew Graham-Yooll was forced into exile[2]. At the time Yooll was simultaneously writing for the British Daily Telegraph. Yool returned to the Buenos Aires Herald as editor-in-chief in 1994.

The Herald was published by the United States-based Evening Post Publishing Company,Charleston, S.C., which fully owned it from 1998 until 2007, having first purchased a controlling interest in the paper in the early 1970s. As of 2008 it is published by the Argentine businessman Sergio Szpolski.[3]In December 2008, Spolzki sold the Herald to Orlando Vignatti, owner of Ámbito Financiero and La Capital, among others.[4]
