Callie Clark Miller has been named online and special publications managing editor of the Southeast Missourian. This is a new position that recognizes the rapid growth of an Internet presence by the Southeast Missourian as well as the development of high-quality special advertising publications that contain editorial content. Many of these special publications also have online Web sites.

Miller, a native of Van Buren, Mo., joined the Southeast Missourian in 2002, coming from a sister newspaper, the Daily American Republic in Poplar Bluff, Mo. She was promoted to features editor in 2005 and assumed additional duties in 2006 as a coordinator for online content and special publications.

"The creation of a new position at the managing editor level is an indication of the commitment the Southeast Missourian is making to its Web site (semissourian.com) and to special publications like SHE magazine," said Southeast Missourian publisher Jon K. Rust.

New responsibilities

Miller's new responsibilities will include planning content, developing staff and freelance resources and establishing journalism guidelines for the newspaper's Web sites. She will also serve as a resource for similar initiatives at sister papers within Rust Communications, the parent company of the Southeast Missourian.

"We are pleased to have someone with Callie's level of interest and high standards for quality to lead this effort," said R. Joe Sullivan, editor of the Southeast Missourian. "Online content is drawing bigger audiences every day. With this level of commitment, our products and our consumers of information will be well-served."

Miller and her husband, Bob Miller, reside in Jackson. Bob Miller is a former Southeast Missourian reporter and news editor and currently is a news designer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
