OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The executive editor of the Omaha World-Herald is resigning to take a job in corporate communications.

The World-Herald reported that Executive Editor Melissa Matczak announced Monday she would resign after a long career at the newspaper.

Matczak began at the World-Herald in 1997 as an education reporter. She worked for four years as managing editor and became executive editor in 2017.

The World-Herald says she has accepted a corporate communications position but didn’t name the company.

The current managing editor, Paul Goodsell, will oversee the newsroom during a search for a new executive editor.
