In Nicarargua, the Ortega clan controls Channel 8, Channel 13 and the Secretary of Communications and Citizenship.

The newly launched Channel 13, “viva Nicaragua” is being advertised as a network with a “youthful profile” featuring “news focused on social themes.”

Joining Juan Carlos Ortega, manager of Channel 8 Television, Luciana, Camila and Maurice Ortega Murillo have become the next generation of an extensive family tradition of managing media in the Central American nation.

First lady Rosario Murillo is a spokesperson for Daniel Ortega’s government, as well as the Secretary of Communication and Citizenship.
