'Diario Hoy', one of Ecuador's most respectable dailies, used to publish a print edition for 32 years. But recently, the daily circulation of the paper was reduced to a weekend edition and online content. While going online is a trend the paper shares with others around the world, reporters in Ecuador say they are facing economic hardship as well as increasing censorship from the government.

Ruxandra Guidi and Bear Guerra reported from Ecuador on a fellowship with the International Reporting Project (IRP).
