Stewart replaces Carmichael

Veteran newspaperman Michael Stewart has been named the Meridian Star’s executive editor.

Publisher Crystal Dupre says Stewart come to Meridian after working the last three years as both the north county editor of the Northwest Florida Daily News in Fort Walton Beach, Fla., and as the editor of a sister paper to that publication, the Crestview News Bulletin.

Stewart previously worked at the Star from 1999-2000 as a general assignment reporter.

Stewart replaces former executive editor Fredie Carmichael, who began work in May with the Mississippi Development Authority.

Stewart graduated with an associate of arts degree in mass communications from Pensacola Junior College and earned a double major in journalism and government/international affairs from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D.
