The Bay Islands Voice is an independent publication with no political orientation. Its intellectual and administrative orientation are under the direction of a board of regents consisting of Hondurans by birth.

Bay Islands Voice is a vehicle for informing the diverse communities of the Bay Islands of Honduras, as well as the many visitors to the islands, and a forum for exchanging ideas to improve conditions on the islands, to contribute to their sustainable development and to project a positive image of the islands to the outside world.

The Voice reports on community news, culture, business, sports, education and the spiritual life of the Bay Islands, striving always to provide accurate, timely and useful information and to encourage the free expression of ideas.

The Voice supports and encourages programs that strengthen the sense of pride and community on the Bay Islands and show alternatives to the islands’ youth. It does this both through its reporting and also through direct sponsorship and internships.

The Voice understands that its success as a publication depends on the success of the Bay Islands community.

The Staff of the Bay Islands Voice are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of professional journalism but at the same time humble about their imperfections as mortal beings. As such, they will make mistakes, but strive constantly to improve, and promise to listen and respond to reader comments and to respect opposing points of view.
