Three veteran journalists prepare to say goodbye to Miami Herald

DECEMBER 2, 2013 

Three veteran Miami Herald journalists with a combined 120+ years of experience are preparing to bid the paper farewell. Copy editor Sam Jacobs, and photojournalists Marice Cohn Band and Joe Rimkus Jr. decided to accept a recent buyout offer and will say goodbye to colleagues this Friday.

Joe Rimkus, Jr. began his career in photojournalism by tagging along to football games with his father, long-time Miami News photographer Joe Rimkus Sr.

"I learned everything from him," Joe told the Sun-Sentinel in 1995.


Joe - an FIU graduate - started at the Herald 40 years ago, getting his foot in the door by starting out as a photo lab tech.




Marice Cohn Band, Born and reared in Miami, began her career at the Herald in 1979 after an internship at the old Miami News and a stint as a photographer at the Miami Beach Sun-Reporter.

In her almost 35 years at the paper, she's covered every kind of assignment. But she's perhaps best known for her tender feature images of children.


Copy editor Sam Jacobs joined the Herald in 1967 and is the paper's longest serving newsroom staffer.
