The longtime publisher of the Arizona Daily Sun is retiring.

Don Rowley has led the Flagstaff newspaper for 23 years, overseeing changes that included the addition of a Saturday newspaper in 1992 and a move to the west side of town in 1995.
The paper later went back to publishing six days by cutting the Monday edition. It is owned by Lee Enterprises.
Rowley says in a story published Wednesday that he and his wife will spend more time traveling and with their family.
A new publisher is expected to be named later this year.
Rowley says his career in the newspaper industry has been rewarding and diverse. It included a 12-year stint at the Daily Herald in Provo, Utah, and five years at Pulitzer corporate in St. Louis.
