Longtime investigative reporter Carol Marbin Miller is stepping into a new role: Deputy investigations editor at the Miami Herald.
Marbin Miller is a two-time Pulitzer finalist and has been a part of the Herald’s investigative team for about a decade.
Some of her most high-profile pieces include Neglected to Death, which highlighted terrible and even deadly conditions inside Florida’s assisted living facilities; Innocents Lost, detailing the lack of protection for children being abused by their parents; and Fight Club, on the topic of mistreatment of detainees in the juvenile justice system.
Marbin Miller will still have a role in reporting at the paper despite her new position.
Marbin Miller graduated from Florida State University before earning a degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. She worked at the St. Petersburg Times before moving to the Herald in 2000.
The veteran journalist has netted several awards including the Worth Bingham Prize for Investigative Journalism twice, the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting, the Selden Ring Award for Investigative Reporting, the Lucy Morgan Award for Open Government Reporting, the Pulliam First Amendment Award and the Paul Hansell Award for Distinguished Achievement in Florida Journalism.
She has also strongly advocated for public records protections, which Marbin Miller has relied on extensively throughout her reporting. She’s even pushed for a constitutional amendment to shore up those protections.
“For too long we’ve placed too little faith in the good citizens of Florida and too much faith in the lawmakers who quite often benefit the most from our silence,” Marbin Miller said.
“Voters have shown again and again that they do not want to be governed in darkness.”
