The Miami Herald partners with FIU to cover local news in South Florida


Five undergraduate students from Florida International University's Department of Journalism + Media are working with the Miami Herald covering topics ranging from the coronavirus pandemic to city governance as part of a new internship program.

“The Herald is thrilled to be working with FIU on this important partnership, which we believe will provide valuable training opportunities to young journalists and expand our reach into the community as we cover the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Rick Hirsch, managing editor for the Miami Herald.

“This a great opportunity for the students involved,” says Charles Strouse, instructor and digital director of FIU's South Florida Media Network. “They’re getting real bylines, professional editing from the amazing talent at the Miami Herald and building a portfolio of real professional clips, so when they apply for jobs after graduation, they’ll have published work from a national newspaper that has won many Pulitzer prizes.”
