DeMio to lead N.Ky. bureau


Enquirer gets a new editor

The Cincinnati Enquirer

FORT MITCHELL - An award-winning newspaper editor and writer has joined The Kentucky Enquirer to lead the paper's Northern Kentucky newsroom.

Terry DeMio, 39, a native of Cleveland, took over Monday as Kentucky bureau chief. She will oversee the journalists who work out of the newsroom on Grandview Drive in Fort Mitchell.

DeMio graduated magna cum laude from Kent State University with a bachelor of arts degree in 1986.

She worked from 1987 to 1988 as a reporter at the Geauga Times Leader in Chardon, Ohio, where she covered county and local governments and also wrote and edited the paper's entertainment section.

In 1988 DeMio began a long stint at The Repository in Canton, Ohio, advancing from reporter to editor, culminating in 2000 with her appointment as city editor.

Under DeMio's leadership, the paper earned 87 Associated Press awards, including first place in general excellence as well as awards for news writing, investigative reporting, breaking news and business reporting. In addition, The Repository was named Best Daily Newspaper for its size this year in the Ohio Society of Professional Journalists' contest.

DeMio has won individual writing awards for columns, enterprise reporting and breaking news.
