South Florida is a mecca for tourists, from the beaches and clubs on South Beach to the street art of Wynwood and the Port of Miami, the busiest cruise port in the world. Those visitors have turned the hospitality industry into a huge economic driver in the region. The Miami Herald, one of America’s great metro newsrooms, is looking for a creative, driven reporter to take on this high-profile, audience-focused beat. We want someone who is passionate about being first to report news and committed to digging into trends in cruising, air travel, hotels and attractions for readers in Miami-Dade. The potential stories are endless. The largest cruise lines in the world have their home offices here. We are the travel hub to Latin America. Our premiere hotels -- the Fontainebleau, Faena House -- are household words in the world of luxury. The successful candidate must show competency with analyzing data and working with social media tools like CrowdTangle in prospecting for stories. Essential qualities include flexibility and a demonstrated commitment to constantly adapting to the ever-evolving ways in which readers seek out and interact with journalism. Your work must reflect the needs of an ever-growing and increasingly diverse audience of readers, viewers and listeners in South Florida.
