Miami Herald, The


Miami Herald, The

▪ American newspaper
      morning daily newspaper published in Miami, generally considered the dominant paper in southern Florida and recognized for its coverage of Latin America.

      The Herald was established in 1910 and was known in its early years as a “reporter's paper” because of the freedom of expression it gave many of its writers. The paper also gained a reputation for its hard-hitting exposés and its thorough coverage of Miami's large Spanish-speaking community. Its sister publication, the Spanish-language El Nuevo Herald, is sold in southern and central Florida. The international edition of The Miami Herald is sold in nearly 30 Caribbean and Latin American countries.

      John S. Knight (Knight, John S.) acquired the Herald in 1937, in the process of building what would become one of the largest U.S. newspaper chains, Knight Ridder, Inc. Its holdings include The Philadelphia Inquirer (Philadelphia Inquirer, The) and the Detroit Free Press.

      The Herald has long crusaded against organized crime and community problems, and it is widely noted for its outstanding local reporting. It has won 17 Pulitzer Prizes.
