USA Today next stop for Mizell
Former BJ managing editor Mizell Stewart III will join the USA Today Network as vice president of news operations. That means he’ll be heading up a team seeking to enable and elevate local journalism in more than 100 communities in America.
Wife Valerie and Mizell will continue to live in West Chester Township, which is near Middletown and Hamilton and Cincinnati.
Mizell will work from USA Today’s McLean, Virginia headquarters.
Current BJ vice president and editor Bruce Winges succeeded Mizell, then the managing editor, as the top newsroom executive at the BJ in 2007.
Mizell went to the Evansville, Indiana Courier and Press as editor. Later, he became vice president/content of the newspaper division of E.W. Scripps and Journal Media Group managing director of content.
Twinsburg native and Bowling Green graduate Mizell worked in Tallahassee, Florida before coming to the BJ in 2006.
