Michael Chihak Retiring

Posted By on Fri, Jun 13, 2008 at 3:34 PM

Michael Chihak is retiring from the Tucson Citizen, where he's editor/publisher, later this summer.

His retirement was reportedly announced to the Citizen staff earlier today, and this article just appeared on the Citizen's Web site.

Now comes the speculation as to why someone relatively young would retire from Gannett. Maybe he doesn't want to be in charge of the Citizen when it inevitably dies off. Or maybe he got sick of Gannett. Or maybe neither of these is accurate, and he feels it's just time to do something else--that something else being a job as executive director of the Communications Leadership Institute, a nonprofit organization in San Francisco.

In any case, it's interesting timing, seeing as Gannett earlier this week announced it was freezing its pension plan.

Whatever the cause, we send Michael Chihak good wishes in his retirement.
