New Times started life as a small fortnightly newspaper in late 1987, back when the Miami metropolitan area was served by two dailies, populated with aging retirees, begging for tourists, and struggling to invent a place called South Beach. And, of course, it all moved to a Latin beat. Today the Latin beat remains, but pretty much everything else has changed. There is only one daily paper. The median age has dropped dramatically. Tourists come to play year-round. South Beach's nightlife scene is world-famous. And New Times, now a part of the Voice Media Group family with websites (miaminewtimes.com and browardpalmbeach.com) attracting more than 2.2 million monthly active users and a weekly print edition with a circulation of more than 50,000, has become the region's essential compendium of news and information for residents and visitors alike. Drawing on the talents of a Pulitzer Prize-winning editor and an accomplished editorial staff recruited from across the nation, New Timeshas established a reputation for publishing compelling stories ignored or overlooked by major media, whether they be insightful coverage of local arts and entertainment or unflinching exposés about Miami's steamy political life. That reputation for high-caliber journalism has spread beyond South Florida. New Times has won more than 70 first-place awards for editorial excellence, statewide and nationally, in contests ranging from the Investigative Reporters & Editors competition to the Livingston Awards for Young Journalists. New Times also engages with its readers by serving up some of Miami's hottest live events. In May, our Brew at the Zoo draws thousands of beer and music lovers to Zoo Miami, and for the past decade, our blockbuster Iron Fork chef competition and food tasting has drawn thousands to downtown Miami to sample inventive and exotic cuisines. For the past three years, we've also partnered with the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau to kick off Miami Spice, two months of restaurant discounts that have become a local sensation. New Times is still young and dynamic. And, of course, like the city it serves, it moves to a Latin beat.
