Two MaineToday Media editors have been promoted to new positions.

Angie Muhs, deputy managing editor for The Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram, has been promoted to managing editor. Joe Grant, assistant sports editor for the papers, has been named sports editor.

“Both of these promotions are as well-deserved as any I’ve ever given,” said Scott Wasser, MaineToday Media executive editor and vice president.

“During her five years at The Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram, Angie has proven remarkably capable in a number of diverse and key management roles.”

Muhs, who previously served as deputy managing editor, will oversee the city desk, business, sports, features, photography, page design and copy editing. She previously shared those duties with another deputy, Don Coulter, who recently left the newspapers.

Muhs joined the newspapers in 2005 as assistant managing editor, working initially with the copy desk, then moving to features and online. She worked previously at The State in Columbia, S.C., the Herald-Leader in Lexington, Ky., and the Miami Herald.

Grant joined The Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram as a part-time employee in 2002. He worked for the Kennebec Journal and the Morning Sentinel from 1990 to 2000.

Grant became assistant sports editor last fall, reporting to Coulter, and expanded high school sports coverage.

“Joe also has proven himself in several roles in the sports department, on the copy desk and in other areas of the newsroom,” Wasser said.

“As assistant sports editor, he helped produce the best high school sports coverage in the state. With his leadership our sports department is in extremely capable hands.”

MaineToday Media publishes The Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram, the Kennebec Journal, the Morning Sentinel, the weekly Coastal Journal in Bath and their respective Web sites.
