“We are thrilled to begin publishing Playboy Latino for the fast-growing US Latino and Spanish-speaking market,” said Playboy Latino Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Edgardo Iorio.  “The past 30 years have produced a significant shift in the US demographic and a new generation of Spanish speaking consumers has emerged.  Playboy Latino will provide this fast-growing population with an entertaining platform to share their accomplishments, views and interests in the arts, sports, political and business world.”

Playboy Latino will offer readers the engaging, thoughtful and provocative content that has made Playboy magazine the gold standard for award-winning journalism,” said Tom Flores, Playboy’s SVP, GM Publishing Operations.  “We look forward to a successful partnership with Arbol Publishing as we continue to expand the Playboy brand to a new group of consumers.”
