Forty-six years is a long time to do anything.
In some ways, I guess I’d qualify as a unicorn. I walked off the UNC (Tar Heel born, Tar Heel bred) campus in 1977. I walked into a newsroom and never left.
I’ve done just about every job you can do in a newsroom.
I’ve been through the great times and tumult. But I always said I would know when it’s time to walk away.
Now’s my time. I’m retiring from my position as executive editor of The Herald.
