Columbia Journalism Grad Promoted to Deputy Editor

Emily Russo Miller continues to make her mark at the Juneau Empire.

The tagline of daily newspaper Juneau Empire reads: ‘The Voice of Alaska’s Capital Since 1912.’


At the top of its 104th year, the paper has shared some exciting staffing news. Two promotions, one of which involves a Columbia University Master’s in Journalism alum:

Emily Russo Miller, who has been with the Empire for five years as its cops and courts reporter, during which time she was the newsroom’s most decorated reporter, will lead the Empire’s reporting team as deputy editor… Miller, a native of York, Pa., joined the Juneau Empire in 2011 from the Roswell Daily Record in New Mexico.

Very impressive. In the same post, the Empire also announced that managing editor Charles Westmoreland is adding director of audience to his duties. Miller’s recent articles can be found here.
