Louisville biz paper hires new reporter
Caitlin Bowling, a reporter for the Smoky Mountaiin News in western North Carolina, has been hired as a business reporter for Business First Louisville, a weekly business newspaper in Kentucky owned by American City Business Journals.
In an email to Talking Biz News, Bowling writes:
I was hired to cover anything and everything related to restaurants and retail in Louisville and its surrounding areas. It was a job that previously went unfilled for a few years after the former reporter left. I will start Dec. 2.
I previously worked as an intern for American City Business Journals’ publication in Cincinnati after college and before getting my first fulltime job as a general news reporter in Western North Carolina. I’ve loved living in the mountains, but it will be nice to move back home and shift my focus to business news.
Bowling is a graduate of Ohio University, where she took a business journalism course. She interned for the Cincinnati Business Courier, another ACBJ newspaper.
