Scott Underwood: THB editors take on new challenges

The Herald Bulletin newsroom is fortunate to have dedicated, veteran editors to guide our coverage.

Three of those folks — Steve Dick, Janis Bowling and Scott Miley — recently took on new assignments. Each of them performed very well in their previous roles, but these new responsibilities will give them a fresh set of challenges and, perhaps, take better overall advantage of their skills.

Here’s a summary of the changes:

u Steve has coordinated our news coverage for the past eight years and will still play an important role in deciding how we use our news resources. But he is now spending more time selecting and editing wire stories, keeping content fresh on our website, editing stories and proofing pages, and helping process materials for our Commentary page. Like Janis and Scott, Steve serves on our editorial board. Steve, whose title is Associate Editor, is second in charge in our newsroom.

Contact him at steve.dick@heraldbulletin.com or 640-4863.

u Janis has taken on the new title of Features Editor. She will coordinate our lifestyles coverage, including the content for our weekly Health, Education, Neighbors, Food, Weekend, Faith and Community pages. Janis will also take over as editor of Madison magazine and will continue to serve as a primary point of contact for the public. Janis’ previous title was Newsroom Coordinator.

Contact her at janis.bowling@heraldbulletin.com or 648-4284.

u Scott is now coordinating our news coverage, which includes supervision of our reporting staff. His new title is Associate Editor for News. Though his previous title was Features Editor, Scott has helped out with our news coverage since his arrival at The Herald Bulletin in 2008. He’s also done a marvelous job of coordinating and editing Madison magazine since ‘08.

Contact him at scott.miley@heraldbulletin.com or 648-4230.

Now that Andrew Luck is getting ready to start the third year of his NFL career, did the Colts make the right decision to release Peyton Manning and turn the offense over to Luck?

Yes, the future is bright.
No, the Colts would have won another Super Bowl by now if they had kept Manning.
Don't know; don't care
