June 4, 2019

NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) — The longtime editor of the Norfolk Daily News in northeast Nebraska says he intends to retire this summer.

Kent Warneke worked for the Omaha World-Herald before becoming managing editor at the Daily News in 1982. He moved up to become editor and vice president in 1992.

Warneke says “there couldn’t be a better place to have spent all these years than in Norfolk at the Daily News.”

His successor hasn’t been named. Daily News Publisher Bill Huse says the newspaper will consider internal and external candidates to succeed Warneke.
