Grupo Fascetto

Grupo Fascetto with the founding of Diario Popular in1974 by two journalists and businessmen from the city of La Plata, Jorge Fascetto and David Kraiselburd. The latter was the owner and Director of newspaper El Día from La Plata. After Kraiselburd was murdered that same year, his son Raúl was appointed Director.

The partnership between Fascetto and Kraiselburd (son) lasted until 2009, when they decided to split their stock. Fascetto stayed with Diario Popular, while Kraiselburd kept El Día (from La Plata, in the province of Buenos Aires) and its radio stations. In 2012 Fascetto purchased all the stock of news agency Agencia Noticias Argentina, the last media business that he shared with Kraiselburd.

Francisco Fascetto is the group's CEO and, alongside his father Jorge and his siblings, he controls the media through three companies: Impreba S.A. (Diario Popular), Man Press S.A. (DiarioPopular.com.ar) and Noticias Argentinas S.A. (Agencia de Noticias Argentinas).
