Dispatch Names New Editor

Dispatch/Alan Miller
Miller was the paper's managing editor for news for 11 years before being named interim editor in June.

The Columbus Dispatch has named its next editor. The Dispatch announced Tuesday that it’s promoting interim editor Alan Miller to the position full-time.

Miller took over in June when long-time editor Ben Marrison stepped down. Miller previously worked as managing editor for news at the Dispatch for 11 years. A press release from the paper calls Miller a talented journalist with a deep understanding of and affection for Central Ohio.

Miller's promotion comes amid a time of big change for the Dispatch. Earlier this year the Wolfe family sold the paper to New York-based New Media Investment Group. Before the sale, the Wolfes owned the Dispatch for a century.
