NY Daily News Editor To Step Down
NEW YORK (AP) _ Harold Evans, whose book ``The American Century″ was a best seller last year, will leave his posts at the New York Daily News and U.S. News and World Report magazine to return to writing books.
Evans, 71, is vice chairman and editorial director of the tabloid and U.S. News and World Report magazine, both owned by Mortimer B. Zuckerman.
Zuckerman, chairman and co-publisher of the Daily News, said Evans would continue to work with the publications in various capacities.
Evans, who previously was president of Random House and a founding editor at Conde Nast Traveler, joined the Daily News in January 1998. Before moving to the United States, he was editor of The Sunday Times of London for 14 years.
He said he had agreed to write two books about American history and a related television series.
