Alabama and TAB Media are both home for Dianna Cagle — it’s just been a while since she’s been here.
But TAB Media is excited to welcome her back as the new production manager for The Alabama Baptist.
“I’m so excited to be back home among Alabama Baptists,” she said.
“While I have been gone a while, God’s timing is perfect. I pray He uses me, along with my fellow teammates, to spread His good news far and wide.”
Cagle previously served the Biblical Recorder, North Carolina’s Baptist news journal, for more than 14 years in a variety of roles, most recently as assistant editor.
Originally from Birmingham, she earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism and history from the University of Alabama and holds a master of divinity degree in biblical counseling from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina.
In addition to her work at the Biblical Recorder, Cagle has served as a page designer and copy editor for several newspapers — The Union-Recorder in Milledgeville, Georgia; The Decatur Daily and the Birmingham Post-Herald. She has worked in every department at some point: features, sports, editorial and news.
Along the way, she also served in a part-time capacity at TAB Media and as a US/C-2 missionary with the North American Mission Board in church and community ministries.
She reopened The Christian Ministry Center, helping with food, clothing and financial assistance to 11 zip codes in and around Batesburg-Leesville, South Carolina. She also helped Lexington Baptist Association with events, public relations and general office work and spoke in churches and associations about missions work.
Editor Jennifer Davis Rash says Cagle brings “the precise skillset” the organization needs to continue expanding its efforts.
“What a benefit she brings our team and Alabama Baptists as a whole with her knowledge and experience in state Baptist paper life,” Rash said.
“In addition, she is an Alabama native and was called into ministry through Alabama Baptist churches and ministries.”
