From The Times-Reporter
Melissa Griffy Seeton has been named The Times-Reporter’s editor. She has served as interim editor since Aug. 20. Melissa will oversee all news content for the T-R as well as focus on emerging digital strategies.
Melissa and her team expanded The Times-Reporter’s election coverage, including a recent three-part series on the role health care played in voters’ decisions on Election Day and an analysis of the impact of congressional redistricting on Tuscarawas County. Melissa comes to the T-R from The Repository, where she was community interaction editor and a reporter for nearly a decade, winning numerous awards for her investigative and enterprise work.
Teri Hayt, executive editor of GateHouse Ohio Media, said Melissa’s strong news background and expertise with social media have helped GateHouse Ohio expand its community coverage.
