Nancy San Martin

The Miami Herald
Interactive Editor
Nancy San Martin, interactive editor at the Miami Herald, is a seasoned journalist with broad experience. She was born in Los Angeles to a Mexican-American mother and Cuban father, but was raised and educated in Miami, which she calls home.
Her journalism endeavors began as a college intern. She was hired as a general assignment reporter upon graduating from Florida International University and spent three years covering South Florida's diverse communities. In 1992, Nancy joined the Sun-Sentinel, where her responsibilities as a specialty writer took her to overseas assignments in Cuba, Haiti and other Caribbean nations.
In 1998, Nancy moved to El Paso as the Border Bureau chief with The Dallas Morning News, covering the Southwest and U.S./Mexico border. She returned to Miami in 2001 to join the Miami Herald’s World Desk, taking on the Cuba beat but also covering stories in Venezuela, Colombia, Nicaragua and other nations across the Americas and as far away as Afghanistan. Nancy shifted to editing as an assistant world editor and, over the past seven years, has spearheaded some of the Herald’s most creative digital projects and helped shape the newsroom’s social media strategy.
Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010, Nancy was tasked with a new challenge as executive producer for the newspaper’s first documentary, Nou Bouke: Haiti’s Past, Present and Future. The documentary, done in association with filmmaker Joe Cardona, was honored with a regional Emmy Award.
Nancy also served as executive producer on a second film, The Day It Snowed In Miami, which chronicles South Florida’s role in the gay-rights movement. The film was shown locally on the PBS affiliate and will broadcast nationally through the end of the year.
Nancy is a Harvard Nieman Fellow, Class of 2006, and served on the board of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists from 1990-1994.
