The Biblical Recorder has restructured the editorial staff and added one new person to fill a vacancy. In October managing editor Shawn Hendricks resigned from the Recorder to become managing editor of Baptist Press in Nashville, Tenn.
Allan Blume, editor/president of the Recorder, said, “This is a good time to restructure our staff to meet the needs of the changing world of journalism. The changes will allow us to wisely use the talent we have and add new talent.”
The positions of managing editor and assistant managing editor have been changed to content editor and production editor. Dianna Cagle’s title has been changed from assistant managing editor to production editor. She has served on the Recorder’s staff since 2006. The Birmingham, Ala., native has a bachelor’s degree in journalism and history from the University of Alabama and a master of divinity degree in biblical counseling from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) in Wake Forest, N.C.
Michael G. McEwen joined the Recorder in October as the content editor. He is a native of Trenton, Tenn. McEwen has a bachelor of arts degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tenn. He has earned both the master of divinity and master of theology degrees from SEBTS. He is enrolled in the seminary’s PhD program.
McEwen previously worked as the information and news specialist at SEBTS for two years.
“I am excited about the combination of skills we have in Dianna and Michael. I believe our readers will appreciate the value they bring to our ministry to N.C. Baptists,” Blume said.
