Adams Publishing Group announces the hiring of Nicole Bowman-Layton as editor of the Chowan Herald.

Bowman-Layton, who previously worked as a copy editor on the Regional Copy Desk for Adams Publishing in Greenville, succeeds her husband, former editor Miles Layton, who has taken a position with another newspaper.

"We are very happy to have Nicole take over as editor of the Chowan Herald," said Mike Goodman, publisher and executive editor for Adams publications in Elizabeth City, Hertford and Edenton. "She brings strong newspaper skills and experience to her new role. In addition, Nicole is very adept in the digital media environment. She makes a great fit to lead the newspaper that covers our Edenton-Chowan community."

Bowman-Layton graduated from North Carolina State University with a bachelor’s degree in English. She also holds an associate’s degree in culinary arts from Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio.

She has over 20 years of newspaper experience as a reporter, copy editor, website designer, social media consultant and videographer. Her background includes working for small weeklies in Ohio to larger dailies throughout Tennessee, Ohio and West Virginia.

She is the oldest child of Susan Bowman of Raleigh. Layton is a graduate of East Wake High School in Wendell.

As a volunteer, Layton is the Mid-Atlantic Region Chapter captain for Team Red, White and Blue, a nonprofit that brings civilians and veterans together through social and athletic activities. She is also involved at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and serves as a den leader for Cub Scout Pack 164. She is also an advocate for organ donation, as her father, the late Kevin Bowman, received two kidney transplants before he passed in 2016.

When Layton isn’t busy working or volunteering, she can be found adventuring. She likes attending classes at the Arts and Wellness Center in Edenton, exploring northeastern North Carolina either by foot or by bike, blogging about her family’s adventures and learning new skills, especially those involving repairing and restoring things.

She and her husband have three children — Samantha, Robert and Joseph — who attend Edenton-Chowan Public Schools.
