MIAMI (AP) — An opinion editor for The Miami Herald is taking over as executive editor for Spanish-language sister publication El Nuevo Herald.
Miami Herald Media Company announced Myriam Marquez's promotion Wednesday.
The Herald (http://goo.gl/aVt9kh ) reports that Marquez began her career as a local news reporter but eventually found her niche as a columnist and editorial writer. Her writing exposed wrongs, advocated for the rights of all citizens and shared tales through the lens of a bilingual, bicultural experience.
Marquez was born in Havana, where her mother taught school and her father shuttled tourists around in his taxi. The family fled in 1959 after Fidel Castro seized power.
Marquez is replacing Manny Garcia, who left earlier this month to become editor of the Naples Daily News.
