PUBLISHING ENTREPRENEUR SETS SIGHT ON LATIN AMERICA

 PUBLISHING ENTREPRENEUR SETS SIGHT ON LATIN AMERICA
 WASHINGTON, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Paul Pope, the 24-year-old


publisher of the Times of the Americas, has "ink in his blood" and is pouring his journalistic vision into the Washington-based publication.
 Times of the America's keeps readers informed of all events in the Western Hemisphere that have significant political, economic and social repercussions for the region, such as the Enterprise of the America's Initiative. In addition to providing data, Times of the Americas analyzes the implications behind the headlines to offer a perspective necessary to success in today's new economic environment. A tall order, but one this up-and-coming entrepreneur is prepared and eager to fill.
 Latin America will assume a vital economic niche over the next 10-15 years -- signs of this growth are already evident -- and readers will be better positioned to take advantage of this development because of Times of the Americas.
 "And while Times of the Americas provides knowledge critical to ascertain successful business ventures and partnerships in the region, it is also the passport for an in-depth cultural understanding of the region. It appeals not only to the corporate world, but also to those in academia, intellectual and diplomatic circles."
 "Our stringers and correspondents based in the region have years of journalistic experience in the countries they report from. They don't fly in and out or base their reporting on information that has been published. Our reporters break news because of their unique contacts and understanding of local issues."
 "Credibility is key to us, and my editorial staff -- in headquarters and on the field -- has it," Pope stated.
 This hands-on publisher started honing his craft at the age of 14, when he came into daily contact with the various departments of his father's publishing operation, assuming his duties as a member of the staff.
 Pope is not a newcomer to the publishing world. Sixty years ago his grandfather was publisher of Il Progresso, the largest Italian- language paper in the United States. Pope's father, the late Generoso Pope, worked as an editor for New York-based Il Progresso and in the then-budding radio industry. He also maintained strong ties with the family business, Colonial Sand and Stone.
 In 1952, Generoso Pope went on his own and purchased the New York Enquirer, which at the time had 17,000 subscribers. He changed the name of the publication to the National Enquirer and turned the modest magazine into one of the premier media companies in the United States.
 "My decision to go into publishing is a link to my grandfather and my father, but I intend to chart my own course and build upon what they have done," Pope stated.
 Pope purchased the Times of the Americas in October 1990 and since then has implemented both structural and editorial changes, including the addition of several sections.
