SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — The editor of The New Mexican says he plans to retire after more than 21 years of guiding Santa Fe’s daily newspaper.
The New Mexican reports (http://bit.ly/12gUp7V) that Rob Dean told the newsroom staff on Tuesday that his last day on the job will be July 3. He says he intends to stay in Santa Fe but has no immediate career plans.
The 59-year-old Dean says it’s been a privilege to work at the independent newspaper.
Owner Robin McKinney Martin says she appreciates the work Dean has done over the years for her and her father.
A native of Montana, Dean came to Santa Fe in 1992 from the News-Tribune in Tacoma, Wash., where he had served as metro editor.
