Longtime Fort Worth Star-Telegram Executive Editor Jim Witt announced his retirement on Thursday, telling readers and employees he would leave effective Oct. 28.

Witt has been in charge of the newsroom at the Star-Telegram since 1996, during a time when the daily newspaper has won several awards, but has also been downsizing by reducing staff and coverage.

Witt, a Fort Worth native, was previously at the Miami News in Florida before joining the Star-telegram in 1986. He became senior vice president/executive editor in 1996.

A search for a new executive editor will begin immediately, according to a story in the newspaper.

The Star-Telegram is owned by Sacramento, California-based McClatchy, publisher of other newspapers such as the Miami Herald, The Kansas City Star, The Sacramento Bee, The Charlotte Observer and The Raleigh News & Observer.
