Cincinnati Enquirer business editor Carolyn Pione writes Sunday about the department’s new employees, particularly former Boston Globe reporter Keith Reed, who will cover Proctor & Gamble.

It’s called beat blogging with a social network, and it’s part of a national pilot program launched by Jay Rosen, a well-known journalism researcher and professor at New York University.
