GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The executive editor of the Green Bay Press-Gazette is retiring after 40 years in the news business.
Sixty-year-old John Dye has been the executive editor since late 2004. Before that he spent three years as the newspaper's managing editor.
A Press-Gazette report (http://gbpg.net/HChoBu ) says his retirement is effective April 20.
Press-Gazette publisher Kevin Corrado says Dye could always be counted on to present stories fairly, accurately and with integrity. He says Dye has earned this time to enjoy his family without the pressures of looming deadlines.
Dye says he plans to remain in Green Bay, spending time with his family and being involved in the community.
Local-news editor Amber Paluch will serve as the interim executive editor. Corrado says the search for a full-time replacement will begin immediately.
