About Us

Since 1923 The Miami Times has been an important part of the week for some of South Florida’s most sophisticated readers; who rely upon this newspaper for the most comprehensive and engaging coverage of community news, arts and entertainment, family-life, business and religious activities.

As the largest and oldest Black newspaper in the Southeast, we represent the pinnacle of community relations. Each week we seek to educate, entertain and inform our readers by covering those issues that matter most within our community with authority, vigor and integrity.

In June of 2011, The Miami Times was awarded the John B. Russwurm Trophy by The Black Press of America, recognizing the paper as the #1 Black newspaper in the country. The National Newspaper Publishers Association also awarded The Miami Times four other awards, including: the John H. Sengstacke General Excellence Award; the Ida B. Wells Best News Story, Best Church Page, and Best Entertainment Section.

With the launch of www.MiamiTimesOnline.com, we offer a new extension to the way we deliver accurate up-to-date information to the community. The introduction of our website offers our readers a new way to get the most from The Miami Times.
