This newspaper, the second oldest in the press of Asturias (a northern region of Spain), was first published on the 26th January 1908. The newspaper was founded by a group of followers of MP José Manuel Pedregal. In order to bring about this project and build up the newspaper, the work of the following two people was decisive: Isidro Pruneda, son of the first printer and publisher in Avilés who contributed with his experience in the publishing business and also Manuel González Wes, Bachelor of Theology and Law and a renowned local journalist who purchased the newspaper a decade after its foundation. Between 1923 and 1927 , La Voz de Avilés suffered the censorship during primo de Rivera’s dictatorship but this did no prevent the paper from being printed. Not even the tragic death during the Civil War of González Wes and the confiscation of the paper throughout the war and post war period, stopped the newspaper from reaching the public. His son, Juan Wes, with the help of his wife, Jesusa López Marqués, was able to struggle through the obstacles of ink and paper shortage and deficient equipment, and managed to relaunch the paper. In 1963, the early death of Wes, pushed his widow to take over the newspaper, a task she achieved with great courage leading La Voz de Avilés through a process of modernisation. Years after, the paper passed on to her son and daughter Juan Manuel and Maria Jesús Wes until 1966 when it merged with El Correo and became part of the Correo Group, nowadays Vocento. Its integration in this media group has favoured not only the modernisation of all its structures but also its consolidation in the media market.
