Journalistic Tradition

Vilalba has told along the 20th century with a wide journalistic tradition that it begins in 1902 with "Ideal Villalbés", manuscript newspaper of the poet and journalist Antonio García Hermida. To this first attempt it will continue, in professional form, the edition of "El Eco de Villalba" (1908) of the hand of Manuel Mato Vizoso and Novo Freire. After this they will come: "El Ratón" (1910), "El Vigía Villalbés" (1913), "Azul y Blanco" (1914), "Villalba y su comarca" (1915), "Galicia pintoresca" (1916) or "El Heraldo de Villalba" (1916) who will suppose García Hermida's definitive consecration in the world of the journalism. But the proliferation of written press does not end there, but it will continue in the same year and the following ones with the first newspaper written entirely in Galician in the town, "A Xustiza" (1918), and in a little time: "Aurora" (1918), "El Gato" (1919), "La Voz Villalbesa" (1921), "El Progreso Villalbés" (1922) founded by Enríquez Chanot, "El Villalbés" (1925), "El Villalbés de Buenos Aires" (1927) or "La Unión Ciudadana" (1929). In the years of the II Republic was edited a newspaper politically active, "Faro Villalbés" (1932). One of their more significative firms was Carmiña Prieto Rouco, authoress of the "Himno da Terra Cha". In the years of the dictatorship only two newspapers saw the light, both of net sports character: "Stadium" (1949) and "El Castillo" (1950). It will be necessary to wait up to the democracy that a new newspaper born reaching then a wide repercussion: A Voz de Vilalba (1983).
