A Message to Miami Herald Readers and Advertisers
The news about the state of the economy and the toll it has taken on businesses across the nation has become a steady diet for all of us over the past few months. The impact has been felt in businesses large and small, and newspapers are no exception.
The Miami Herald Media Company, like many others, has taken actions to ensure that we weather the storm. As an enterprise committed for more than 100 years to making our community a better place, we have every intention of continuing to do what we do best well into the future.
I want to assure you that our company remains a strong, stable and vital organization. We are proud of the fact that we have the largest news staff by far in South Florida. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality news and information, in English and in Spanish, day in and day out.
And we know -- because you tell us -- that what we do makes a difference in your lives, and in the lives of many others across South Florida.
The Miami Herald Media Company also continues to offer the broadest reach for advertisers. The combined net reach of our products in our core market is over 1.4 million adults,* an audience no other local media can claim.
It’s true we are living in difficult economic times. While we work to manage these challenges, The Miami Herald’s commitment to you will not change. You can count on it.
