Myriam Marquez

El Nuevo Herald
Executive Director

Myriam Márquez, a career journalist, is executive editor of el Nuevo Herald, the largest Spanish-language daily in the nation.

Prior to being named executive editor last October, she served as the first woman and Hispanic to lead the Miami Herald’s opinion pages.

Márquez, who began her career as a local news reporter, quickly excelled as a writer and found her niche in sharing views as a columnist and editorial writer, exposing wrongs, advocating for the rights of all citizens and sharing tales through the lens of a bilingual, bicultural experience.

Born in Havana, where her mother taught school and her father shuttled tourists around in his taxi, Márquez’s life in Cuba came to an abrupt halt when Fidel Castro seized power.

The family fled in 1959, joining other exiles who also settled in South Florida. Márquez was 4 when she began her new life in the United States. She was raised in Miami and is a graduate of Miami High and Miami Dade College. She completed her collegiate degree at the University of Maryland, with a bachelor’s in journalism and minor in political science.

As the head of el Nuevo, she serves a diverse segment of Hispanic readers in South Florida as well as across the United States, the Caribbean, Latin America and Europe.

In 2009, she won the Green Eyeshade award from the Society of Professional Journalists for serious commentary. She also received an award in 2009 from Camacol, the Latin Chamber of Commerce in South Florida, and was listed among the top 100 most "influential Hispanics" in the nation by Hispanicbusiness.com

“I am honored to have been selected to lead el Nuevo Herald’s award-winning team of reporters, editors, designers and photographers, and I am humbled by the trust that publisher David Landsberg has in my capabilities,’’ Márquez said. “It’s a dream job in the most spectacular and energetic city in the nation, this special place I call home, Miami.”

Márquez has worked at the Herald since October 2005. As an assistant city editor, she coordinated coverage of South Florida’s Latin American and Caribbean communities. She was promoted to deputy metro editor in December 2007, served as columnist in 2008 and was selected to oversee the opinion pages in print and online in June 2009.

She has overseen a number of award-winning projects, including coverage of torture suspects at Krome, local politics, higher education and the evolving face of Miami’s Cuban exile community.
