Centre Daily Times editor: ‘It’s time for a change’

What executive editor Bob Heisse tells Romenesko readers about leaving the Centre Daily Times and the Penn State scandal story:

“This story will continue for months, if not years, and I’ve pretty much hired the reporters here and in Harrisburg who are covering it the most. After 10 years here it’s time for a change, and Springfield offers a wonderful opportunity. The staff here is outstanding — I call them the A team — and I think they’ll continue to do well covering the scandal and other stories.”

* Heisse leaves Centre Daily Times to become Springfield (Ill.) State Journal-Register executive editor
