FAIRMONT — Kelly Miller, a veteran newspaper executive, has been appointed publisher of the Times West Virginian, effective May 19.  

She succeeds Chuck Jessup, publisher of the newspaper since October of 2012. He has taken another position with Community Newspaper Holdings Inc., the Times West Virginian’s parent company.

Miller moves to Fairmont from New Castle, Ind., where she’s been publisher of The Courier-Times, a daily owned by the Paxton Media Group.  She has served in various sales executive and general management positions during a 20-year newspaper career in Michigan and Indiana.

“Kelly Miller has established an impressive track record as a publisher and marketing specialist,” said Steve McPhaul, executive vice president and chief operating officer for CNHI. “Her leadership skills, enthusiasm and knowledge of print and digital media will strengthen the Times West Virginian’s commitment to the paper’s readers and advertisers as well as the Fairmont community.”

Miller said she’s  looking forward to “working with the award-winning Times West Virginian staff, becoming acquainted with the people of Fairmont, and getting involved in the community.”

Miller is a Michigan native, and a graduate of Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. She began her newspaper career in St. Joseph, Michigan. She has been active in civic and business organizations, including the American Women’s Business Association. She is also a sports enthusiast, following closely the fortunes of Detroit’s professional hockey (Red Wings),  baseball (Tigers), basketball (Pistons) and football (Lions) teams

Miller is married to Donnie Miller, a retired Army veteran.
