Miami, April 24, 2018 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) acclaimed Journalism Speaker Series presents El Nuevo Herald’s managing editor, Nancy San Martín, at 10 a.m., Wednesday, May 2, at MDC’s Kendall Campus.
San Martín oversees El Nuevo Herald’s day-to-day operations and is responsible for growing the paper’s digital footprint. She also leads the Cuban affairs coverage team for El Nuevo Herald and the Miami Herald. Before joining El Nuevo Herald, San Martín served as the Interactive Editor and Cuba and Immigration Editor at the Miami Herald.
Her journalism career started as an intern with the Miami Herald’s Neighbors section. After graduation, the Herald hired her. In 1992, San Martín joined the Sun Sentinel in Ft. Lauderdale, where her responsibilities as immigration reporter led her to assignments in Cuba, Haiti and other Caribbean nations.
Six years later, San Martín left Florida for the Dallas Morning News, where she worked as the chief of the border bureau covering Mexico and neighboring U.S. states. In 2001, she returned to the Miami Herald as a member of the World Desk. Her coverage took her from the war in Afghanistan, to the devastation in post-earthquake Haiti, to the economic meltdown in Puerto Rico
