Sixty years reporting the news that matters
Sometimes it’s good to age gracefully. For The Daily Journal, Venezuela’s only English-language daily, sixty years of circulation also means sixty years at the top, sixty years reporting the important news, sixty years as a bridge between expatriates and the country they presently call home. And that is quite something.

The DJ has lived through dictatorship and democracy, it has seen presidents come and go, but it has never lost sight of its mission to inform, entertain and educate its readers concerning local and world events, above all, Venezuela.


The DJ was the guest of honor at a select reception held recently at the residence of the U.S. ambassador, William Brownfield. It was a chance for financial supporters of the DJ, both old and new, to join together and raise a glass to make a toast for a very special newspaper.

In his speech Ambassador Brownfield offered his continuing support to the DJ. He said that there are many important English newspapers in the world, and we are proud to have one of them in Venezuela.

Russell M. Dallen Jr, the President of the Daily Journal and its tireless Editor-in-Chief, beamed with happiness.

The fact that the DJ is now celebrating its 60th birthday is due in great part to Mr Dallen’s dedication and vision.

Taking over at a critical time in the paper’s history and a time of serious political crisis in Venezuela, Mr. Dallen managed to breathe new life into the business, while staying true to the essential spirit of the DJ.

Over the decades, the DJ has been home to many editors, reporters, secretaries and design staff, but it has never lost sight of Jules Waldman’s vision of providing expats and Venezuelans with an English-language daily.

The DJ continues to be a brave newspaper that will always look forward to the future with an eye on the main stories and the enthusiasm to get the job done.

As Mr. Dallen always says: “It’s is a big world; someone has to cover it.”
