Editorial Board

The goal of the Miami Herald Editorial Board is to come up with solutions to South Florida’s pressing problems and to celebrate our community’s successes. Our editorials are not the final say, however. We value our readers’ opinions and we welcome your suggestions. Let us know how you feel about the issues that challenge South Florida.

• Your opinion matters: Send your letter to the editor of no more than 350 words to heralded@MiamiHerald.com We receive far more letters than we can print, so we try to publish the most representative, interesting, and provocative opinions. To give more readers a say, we condense letters. And we do not publish letter writers more often than once every 60 days. Letters must bear the writer’s name, full address, and daytime phone number so that we can contact you if we have a question.

NewsMedia in Education

Teachers incorporate the digital newspaper into their instruction at many schools through the NewsMedia in Education program. We complement the newspaper with teacher activity guides and common core themes that include activities for the teacher to use in the classroom. NewsMedia in Education works closely with schools and serves as an advisory to high school journalism teachers. We provide tours of the newspaper facilities and much more. Invite us to your next career day event.

• Contact NewsMedia in Education manager Karen Tynes: 305-376-3282.

Marketing and Community Relations

Miami Herald community projects include several events that focus on youth and education, such as the Miami Herald and el Nuevo Herald Spelling Bee and Athletic Awards. The Miami Herald also sponsors the Silver Knight Awards, which recognize outstanding high school students for their community service and exceptional academic performance.

The Miami Herald Media Company supports many local organizations, providing more than $1 million of in-kind advertising support each year. Organizations are asked to reach out at least six months in advance when seeking advertising support.

Herald Charities is a nonprofit organization established by the Miami Herald in 1953 to help meet the needs of the South Florida community. One of its programs, the Wish Book, allows readers to donate to people in need during the holidays. Throughout the year, the Miami Herald develops partnerships to assist a variety of nonprofit organizations.

Community Room

Perhaps one of the best features of the new building in Doral is the Community Room, which can accommodate between 200-220 guests. This will mean an opportunity to connect on a personal level with the people who consume our content in print, on our various digital platforms and through our partnerships with radio and television.

We plan to take full advantage of the new space by developing a steady stream of programming to engage readers in an exchange of ideas, thoughtful discussions in the form of Town Halls, brainstorming sessions, workshops and informational seminars.

Stay tuned for more information on our first Community Room segment.

•  Do you have an idea for an event that should be held in our new Community Room?
