The newspaper's editor is Joe Hirsch. The reporters are students at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.[1][2]

The Herald's logo, an American Indian aiming his bow and arrow, is based on a weather vane fabricated at the Jordan Mott Ironworks, which gave the neighborhood its name. The newspaper's partner publication is the Hunts Point Express[1], which is also edited by Hirsch and staffed by students from Hunter College. The Herald was founded by Bernard L. Stein, former editor of the Riverdale Press, as was The Express, which began publication in 2006.[3]
