BALTIMORE (AP) — The Daily Record reports that executive editor and vice president Tom Linthicum is set to retire.
According to a story posted on the newspaper’s website, the Linthicum, 64, will retire at year’s end. He became executive editor in 2006, and was named vice president a year later.
The Daily Record reports that next year, Linthicum and his wife, Dorothy, will teach at the College of the Transfiguration in Grahamstown, South Africa.
Linthicum began his journalism career in 1970 as a reporter with The Atlanta Constitution. He was a reporter, editor and business executive at The Baltimore Sun from 1974 to 2001, when he left to start a media consulting firm.
Daily Record Publisher Suzanne Fischer-Huettner says a national search is under way for a successor to Linthicum.
