Stocks in this article: SSP

CINCINNATI, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ellen Weiss, an accomplished journalist and successful news executive, will take charge of The E.W. Scripps Company's (NYSE:SSP) multimedia news bureau in Washington, D.C., effective February 11, 2013.

As vice president and bureau chief, Weiss will oversee a growing team of investigative reporters whose stories appear in all Scripps television, newspaper and digital markets, plus guide the company's daily national coverage and manage the Scripps Howard News Service.

Weiss joins Scripps from The Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit investigative news organization, where she was the executive editor in charge of strategic planning and investigative journalism. She was instrumental in the story selection, editing, publishing and distribution of original investigative journalism. Through her leadership, the organization's content crossed multiple platforms to reach audiences online and on major print, broadcast and digital outlets.

Before joining the nonpartisan organization in 2011, she enjoyed a transformative and successful career with National Public Radio. During her tenure, which spanned nearly 30 years, she was at the forefront of news coverage and investigations that touched many corners of the world. From early beginnings as a production assistant, she spent nearly two decades on the critically acclaimed "All Things Considered" program before spending five years as the supervising senior editor of NPR's national desk. In 2007 she was named senior vice president of NPR, overseeing the entire news organization of 400 domestic and international journalists.

Weiss spearheaded the conversion of NPR's newsroom from an exclusively broadcast production to one that is now multimedia. She directed the global expansion of NPR reporting and the creation of award-winning programs and news coverage. Her guidance resulted in significant audience growth, increased philanthropic support and numerous awards for journalistic excellence.
