John Futch retires

John Futch, managing editor of the Press Telegram, told staffers that August would be his final month with the paper, in a meeting earlier today.

Futch, a stalwart newsroom fixture at the Press-Telegram for nearly three decades, probably does more to get each edition out the door than anyone in the building. His dedication and experience leave some incredibly large shoes to fill.

Management has not announced a replacement yet.

We have no further details at this time. If you have anything to share, please contact us at

So Haakenson is out and Futch announces his retirement a week later. There are limits even for superman. A person can only do so much.
