Semana.com

Semana.com is the website launched in 1998 of the Revista Semana, the country’s leading opinion and political analysis magazine, owned by Felipe López Caballero, who is the son of Alfonso López Michelsen and grandson of Alfonso López Pumarejo, these last 2 former presidents of Colombia.

The digital media conserves the editorial line of the printed version, and many of its articles and columns coincide. However, the digital media has distinctive features regarding the printed version. The website produces content more constantly than the printed version of the magazine, which circulates weekly. In addition, own investigation and journalistic analysis are generated and promoted from the digital media.
