Paige Kimble Promoted To Executive Director Of Scripps' Nationally Renowned Spelling Bee

CINCINNATI, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The E.W. Scripps Company (NYSE: SSP) today promoted Paige Kimble to executive director of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, the nation's largest and longest-running educational program.

Kimble, 45, has worked for Scripps since 1991, but her association with the company began much earlier: she is the 1980 runner-up and 1981 national champion of the Bee.

Since 1998, Kimble has served as director of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, overseeing all aspects of the program, including development of educational and contest materials, licensing and promotional opportunities, sponsorship development and retention, and broadcast production.

"Paige deserves this promotion because she has significantly increased the geographic and demographic reach of the Bee, raised its profile and improved its academic rigor," said Rich Boehne, Scripps president and CEO. "The Bee is a national treasure in every corner of the United States and beyond, thanks to her leadership."

Scripps, which is synonymous with "spelling bee," has sponsored the Scripps National Spelling Bee for seven decades. What started in 1925 with nine contestants has become not only a competition but a cultural celebration of the English language and academic achievement.

This year, 281 spellers will converge May 26-31, 2013, in the Washington, D.C. area from eight countries and Department of Defense Schools in Europe and the U.S. territories of American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
