John Winn Miller will become the next publisher of the Concord Monitor. Monitor President Aaron Julien announced Miller's hiring yesterday.

Miller, 57, of Lexington, Ky., started his daily newspaper career as a reporter for the Associated Press, where he was Rome correspondent for four years with special assignments to Beirut, Libya, India, Ethiopia and Bulgaria. After he returned to the United States, he worked as a reporter, capital bureau chief and city editor with the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky before becoming executive editor at the Centre Daily Times (State College, Pa.) and later the Tallahassee Democrat in Florida.

Miller became senior vice president of the Tallahassee Democrat, in charge of production, technology, advertising and circulation, and then publisher of The Olympian in Olympia, Wash.

As a reporter and editor, Miller won numerous national awards and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist. He and his wife, Margo, are the parents of Allison Miller, an actress who most recently starred in the NBC series Kings.

Miller succeeds Geordie Wilson.
