Number of graphic artists[edit]

The article says there are about 23 graphic artists as of 11/20/2007. I work in the art department, and there are 5 full-time staffers in that department. This does not include page designers and paginators, but they are a separate department altogether. I'm changing this number in the article to 5, and I will investigate the number of page designers. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.28.148.44 (talk) 06:33, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Breaking News today 10/03/2006[edit]

The publisher stepped down today. I'm a newbie, so I'll leave it to someone else to edit this. I came to the Miami Herald website when I found out they heard about the Foley e-mails long ago but decided not to publish a story.

Hope you like it. Mariano(t/c) 08:03, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

I had copied "nine news reporters" from the paper's web site. But I took it out because I doubt it; the number is too small. I work in a newspaper and have context. Maurreen 14:14, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Why ignore their own website?[edit]

That sounds very biased. So if the Miami Herald website says that they only have X number of reporters you are just going to unilaterally goose up their numbers because it makes you feel better?? Maybe you should contact the Herald directly and ask? I wonder why someone who is not even a regular editor or contributor or reader of the Miami Herald would be involved in editing information about it.

Update 4/30/06[edit]

The spelling bee has been discontinued for a few years because the paper could not afford $40K/yr for it; fortunately now it can afford film and street festivals. The Tropic sunday magazine was also killed several years ago to little grief. Should be corrected in article.

Needless to say, the number of reporters is much greater than nine, between fifty and one hundred, subject to adjustment for part timers. There is a remarkable number of former Herald reporters at national newspapers.

The parent company, Knight-Ridder, was recently sold to McClatchy Newspapers.

The Herald's latest endeavor is the gradual takeover of WLRN-FM, the barely managed local NPR station, via commercial filled rush hour news reports, interviews and now special programs. Curiously for a media company, there is no public information on the financial aspects of this relationship.

Frequently nicknamed "Monster by the Bay."

Request for article[edit]

Photos of headquarters[edit]

  • Does anyone have a photo of the Miami Herald headquarters that they'd like to put on the page. I think it'd be a great addition to the page. --Comayagua99 (talk) 16:26, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Journalism Expert[edit]

Can someone review the controversies section to verify that it is current, balanced, and valid? It was deleted earlier today without justification and could probably do with careful review. Thanks! Jminthorne (talk) 02:47, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Amazon Kindle[edit]

Just an update. The Miami Herald is available in ebook format for the Amazon Kindle. The link to it.

It should be written into the article since it pertains to the newspaper. -- Joel M. Chat ✐ 23:37, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Digital Newspaper[edit]

Apart from having a Kindle version, Miami Herald also has a Digital Newspaper. [1] -- Joel M. Chat ✐ 20:55, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Removed an un-cited statement[edit]

I removed the line below because the source of the information has not been cited for almost two years, May of 2010.

On those years when a co-sponsor cannot be found for the spelling bees, the Miami Herald has declined to foot the entire bill, and thus the spelling bees have been cancelled[citation needed].
