Carolyn Pione Micheli will join The E.W. Scripps Co. as vice president of corporate communications and investor relations, effective March 25. Micheli replaces Tim King, who has taken a position with the Scripps family office.

“At Scripps we put a high value on effectively communicating our story with shareholders, employees and the great communities where we do business across the country,” said Rich Boehne, Scripps president and CEO. “Carolyn’s extensive experience with the news industry and with investors has prepared her well to be a strong contributor here at Scripps as we build new businesses for digital media consumers. She’s also one of us, a dedicated journalist motivated by a commitment to serve audiences and businesses in local communities across the country.”

For the past four years, she has been communications director for CincyTech, a public-private seed-stage investor focused on startup technology companies in Southwest Ohio. She developed the strategy for telling the CincyTech story to private investors and portfolio companies and a wide variety of other constituencies in the entrepreneurial economy.

In 2006, after serving as a deputy business editor and writer, she became business editor for The Cincinnati Enquirer. She led an award-winning staff and directed coverage for breaking and enterprise business news in the Greater Cincinnati area. Her work concentrated on the local market but also extended into the national economy with the financial crisis on Wall Street.
