New free dailies in Latin America and Spain

O Terminal 2012Thanks to the ongoing research of Marv Carlson of ABYZ Newslinks, some so-far unknown free dailies were discovered in Latin America.

Near the Brazilian metropol Rio, free afternoon papers Ter Notícias and O Terminal are published since 2010 in Niteroi, Sao Gonçalo, Macaé and Petrópolis (O Terminal) and Juiz de Fora (Ter Notícias).

In Guarulhos (Sao Paulo) daily Guarulhos Hoje is published for free since 2010, it was launched in 2008 as a paid paper.

Two papers from Ecuador were discovered. Diario Estacion was published from (at least) October 2010 to February 2011 in the capital Lima. A now defunct Twitter account still exists while there is also a YouTube movie on a sampling action of the paper.

El Gratuito, also published in Lima, started just after Diario Estacion stopped and using a similar color design, suggesting it succeeded Diario Estacion. The website is not available anymore, the Twitter account stopped in April 2011.

In Spain, Carlson discovered El Acueducto, a free paper published since April this year in Segovia (Castile and León). The paper is named after the famous aquaduct in the city.
