Enquirer names new business, opinion editors

From The Enquirer

Leadership of Enquirer Media’s business and opinion coverage is changing.

Beginning Monday, Cindi Andrews will lead the business team as business editor, and Associate Opinion Editor Kevin Aldridge has been promoted to replace Andrews as opinion editor.

In addition, Byron McCauley is rejoining The Enquirer and Cincinnati.com as a general-interest columnist.

Andrews replaces Bowdeya Tweh, who left The Enquirer to work at The Wall Street Journal.

She has been an editor and reporter at Enquirer Media for more than a dozen years, covering beats including commercial real estate and City Hall. A University of Cincinnati graduate, she previously worked at the News & Record in Greensboro, N.C., and as a residential real estate agent. Andrews lives in Mount Washington.

She can be reached at candrews@enquirer.com.

Aldridge has held reporting, editing and opinion positions at Enquirer Media and Dayton Daily News, most recently serving as editor of Butler County’s Journal-News prior to rejoining Enquirer Media in 2016. A Wittenberg University graduate, he is senior pastor at St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church in Milford and an adjunct professor at Miami University Middletown. Aldridge lives in West Chester.

He can be reached at kaldridge@enquirer.com.

McCauley has held a number of writing and editing positions, first joining Enquirer Media in 2003 after serving as editorial page editor at the Times of Shreveport (Louisiana). A graduate of Louisiana Tech, the University of Southern Mississippi and Harvard’s executive education program, he has also worked in education advocacy and public relations.  McCauley lives in Milford.

He can be reached at bmccauley@enquirer.com.

In addition to writing a column, McCauley will serve on the editorial board. Led by Aldridge, other board members are Enquirer Media President Eddie Tyner, Vice President and Editor Peter Bhatia, Engagement Editor Katie Vogel and Senior News Director Michael McCarter.

With these moves, Bhatia said, The Enquirer continues to position itself to respond to the region’s online news needs while serving our loyal print readers.
