Boston Globe Features Editor Steve Greenlee, who was a reporter and editor with the Press Herald in the 1990s, will be the newspapers' new managing editor.
City Editor Dieter Bradbury, who has held a variety of reporting and editing jobs since joining the newspaper in 1980, has been promoted to deputy managing editor for news.
Kevin Miller, a reporter for the Bangor Daily News for the past six years, has been hired as Washington bureau chief for MaineToday Media, which includes the Kennebec Journal in Augusta and the Morning Sentinel in Waterville as well as the Press Herald/Telegram.
North Cairn will join the Portland newsroom's reporting staff, covering the environment.
"We're committed to providing our communities with the kind of vital journalism they deserve. And these talented journalists have proven they are dedicated to the mission. We're thrilled to have them," Executive Editor Cliff Schechtman said.
"We've now hired eight new staffers in the last few months as we grow our news organization to better serve the region," Schechtman said.
Greenlee joined The Boston Globe in 2000 and served in a variety of roles. Mostly, he directed front-page enterprise stories from the features staff and oversaw the daily features sections. He also has been the Globe's jazz critic and beer writer.
Greenlee will oversee the city, copy, features and sports desks and work closely with Angie Muhs, executive editor for interactive with MaineToday Media. Both will report to Schechtman.
Greenlee plays in a jazz quartet and has run in five consecutive Beach to Beacon 10K road races.
Miller joined the Bangor Daily News staff in 2006 and took over the newspaper's political coverage in 2009. He led the paper's coverage of Maine's 2009 referendum on same-sex marriage as well as the 2010 gubernatorial race.
Miller has focused on environmental issues and local government in the Bangor paper's Hancock County bureau since July 2011. He is a New Jersey native and a graduate of New York University's journalism program.
Cairn has worked for two decades as a magazine editor, nature columnist, narrative feature writer and editorial writer for the Cape Cod Times in Hyannis, Mass.
She most recently was editor-in-chief of the award-winning Cape Cod VIEW magazine.
