MIAMI, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Media Center at Florida International University announces the publication of its 1998 Latin American Media Directory which contains a series of additions designed to make it more useful to buyers. The 428-page directory is now available on a diskette for mail merges and labels. As well, the new edition contains a description of the media scene in each country so that readers can judge which outlet or outlets best serve their needs. The edition also includes the names of foreign correspondents for those who might wish to contact someone on the scene. The directory lists all 1,102 daily newspapers -- from Canada in the north to Tierra del Fuego in the south -- which publish in Spanish or Portuguese. There are more than 4,000 radio and television stations listed, including all the chains plus major independent outlets. The number of e-mail addresses has doubled in this edition as more Latin American media join the Internet. The directory costs $87 and the diskette $50. The diskette is not sold separately from the directory. Payment can be made by check, P.O. number or Master/Visa cards. Income from the sale of the directory helps fund training activities for Latin American journalists.
