LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 13, 2004) -- Everett J. Mitchell II, 42, a 1985 graduate of the University of Kentucky School of Journalism and Telecommunications, recently was named vice president for news and editor of The Tennessean in Nashville, Tenn.

Mitchell joined the staff of The Tennessean after serving four years as managing editor of the Detroit News, where he was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2003 for a series of articles on how the criminal justice system in Detroit either could not find fugitives or allowed them to go free.

In addition to the Detroit News, Mitchell was either a reporter or an editor at the Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky.; The News Journal in Wilmington, Del.; The Cincinnati Enquirer, Cincinnati, Ohio; and the Statesman Journal in Salem, Ore.

Mitchell told the staff of The Tennessean he intends to focus on public service journalism, watchdog journalism, and "news that makes a difference in people's lives."
