Buffalo biz paper hires associate editor
Michelle Cioci, the assistant managing editor of the Utica Observer-Dispatch in New York, has been named the associate editor of Buffalo Business First, an American City Business Journals paper.
Cioci writes, “I’m leaving the area for a job in Buffalo. (Yes, I know their winters are brutal, too.) It’s time. The move is half way to home, and I’m ready for a new challenge. I’m blessed because I will be joining two former O-D reporters — Allissa Kline and Dan Miner — at Business First, a weekly business publication there, and I’m ready to get to know Western New York.
“But that doesn’t mean I won’t be leaving a piece of my heart here.
“There’s a piece of it with everyone I’ve worked alongside at the O-D, every person who contacted me at the paper, every story I helped tell.”
