Editor of the Nottingham Evening Post Graham Glen is to retire after 12 years at the helm.
Glen, 59, has edited the Evening Post since Northcliffe bought paper from T. Bailey Forman and has led numerous significant campaigns during his time there.
Under his editorship the paper picked up a string of national awards including Press Gazette Regional Newspaper of the Year in 1999 as well as Press Gazette campaigning newspaper of the year in 2005 and a Race in the Media award.
In 1996 Glen saw the Evening Post switch from broadsheet to tabloid following the installation of a new £10m printing press in Derby.
Glen formerly edited The Citizen in Gloucester, when the paper covered the Fred West murder inquiry as well as managing editor of the Western Morning News and deputy editor of the Express & Echo in Exeter.
He leaves the paper at the end of next month.
