HistoryEdit

It was founded in 1933 by Editorial Católica (EDICA),[4][5] and it came to replace the Correo Extremeño.[6] According to a review published in the same newspaper it was "created to fight against Socialism".[7] Its first editor was Santiago Lozano,[8] coming from the School of Journalism of El Debate. For the rest of the Second Republic the newspaper sticked to editorial policy close to the CEDA.[6] During the Francoist dictatorship the newspaper remained under the control of EDICA.

Hoy was purchased in 1988 by the Correo Group,[9] merged in 2001 with Prensa Española to form Vocento.
