Jonathan Wolman, who over more than 45 years in journalism served as editor and publisher of The Detroit News and previously worked as a reporter, Washington bureau chief and executive editor at The Associated Press, died Monday in Detroit. He was 68.
His family told the News that Wolman died of complications from pancreatic cancer.
Wolman had been editor and publisher of the News since 2007, during which the paper met financially challenging times but still kept Detroit as one of the few U.S. cities with more than one major daily newspaper.
Wolman had a nearly 31-year career with the AP, starting in 1973 as a reporter in Madison, Wisconsin. He rose to serve as Washington bureau chief, managing editor and executive editor.
