The South Florida Business Journal has hired Judy Miller, who directed a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative team, as its managing editor.

Brian Bandell of the Business Journal writes, “In her role as managing editor, Miller will oversee newsroom operations under the direction of Editor-in-Chief Mel Meléndez. Her responsibilities include supervising and editing reporters, and the distribution of crucial business news across various publishing platforms such as online, mobile, email, print and social media.

“‘It took a while to fill this position because we needed someone like Judy: an award-winning journalist and experienced managing editor with a thorough understanding of our mission,’ Meléndez said. ‘We’re thrilled to have her on board.’

“Miller worked at the Miami Herald from 1992 to 2006, starting as an assistant city editor in Broward County and rising to investigations editor and then managing editor. She led the team of Herald journalists that won the Pulitzer Prize in 1999 for exposing voter fraud in the Miami mayoral election. She also co-led the Herald team that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the Elián González raid. She was part of Pulitzer Prize finalist teams with the Herald for two other stories: the Columbia shuttle explosion and electrical flaws in South Florida bus shelters.”
