MATTOON — A meet-and-greet will be held today TUESDAY and Wednesday with JG-TC Publisher Randy Mitchell.
Tonight's TUESDAY'S event is from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Pagliai's Pizza, 1600 Lincoln Ave. in Charleston. Wednesday's event is from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Villa Pizza, 2023 Western Ave. in Mattoon. It's a chance for readers to discuss the work the Journal Gazette/Time Courier does and to connect with those who make decisions. Members of the newsroom and other staff will be attending, as well.
"I am always appreciative of any opportunity for face-to-face meetings," Mitchell said. "I regularly receive emails and phone calls, but nothing is better than shaking someone’s hand and looking them in the eyes. I am open to suggestions and input on how we can do things better as the area’s No. 1 news information provider."
Mitchell was named publisher in January. He was formerly publisher and chief executive officer of KPC Media Group, Inc., a privately-owned group of three daily newspapers and eight weekly newspapers in northeast Indiana.
Mitchell has relocated to the area and plans to be active in the community.
