From The Trussville Tribune Staff Reports
TRUSSVILLE – The Trussville Tribune has named Megan Miller Managing Editor.
Miller comes to Trussville fresh from a position managing digital content at WIAT CBS42 in Birmingham, her first job post-graduation from The University of Alabama. Miller brings website and social media management skills to The Tribune, hoping to grow the readership of online content far beyond just Trussville, Clay and Pinson.
“In Megan, I believe we’ve found an editor to lead the Tribune who brings a unique balance of strengths and enthusiasm to move our newspaper forward. Her experience in television will be invaluable to our digital media side, which continues to expand, and her sense of urgency in breaking news will meet Tribune readers’ expectations of The Trussville Tribune,” said Scott Buttram, Publisher of the Tribune.
Although Miller has been working in television for the last year, she’s a newspaper girl at heart.
“Her passion for newspapers, though, was a major factor in the decision to bring her on board,” said Buttram. “As a student at the University of Alabama, Megan spent time with The Tuscaloosa News, which I consider the epitome of a great newspaper. They have always served as the model for the Tribune and I hope her experience there will help us achieve the same high standards.”
During Miller’s time at the University, she was a staff writer for UA’s collegiate newspaper, The Crimson White. She also completed two internships at The Tuscaloosa News, one as an entertainment reporter with Tusk 205, the second managing online content.
“Megan was very highly thought of by everyone here at The Tuscaloosa News,” said Jim Rainey, Publisher of The Tuscaloosa News. “I’m confident that she’ll do a great job for the Trussville Tribune.”
Miller said she is excited to serve the Trussville, Clay and Pinson communities as all three continue to grow and thrive.
