Diario Extra was a benchmark of national journalism for building its own style

After 45 years of keeping people informed, Grupo Extra sadly announced its closure due to situations beyond its control leading to the end of the self-proclaimed ‘not sold newspaper in Costa Rica” print newspaper Diario Extra, its digital channel Extra Digital, Radio América, and Extra television.

“After 45 years of transmitting truthful information nationally and internationally and having managed to become the voice of the people! Grupo Extra regrets to inform you of the closure of its operations. Grupo Extra thanks its faithful readers, viewers and listeners for having joined us for so many years together, leaving a mark on the country’s history,” the statement explained.

According to a statement, the closure is due to various situations.

“We came to our end, with our heads held high that we fought to the end, but at the same time with sadness and concern for the future of Costa Rican democracy. Today the Grupo Extra and the Gómez family do not lose, today Costa Rica loses a voice that fights in favor of democracy,” stated the Gómez Quesada family.
