Albert Eisele, co-founder and current editor of The Hill newspaper in Washington, D.C., will retire Sept. 1 as editor and columnist. Eisele will become editor-at-large and will continue to write occasional stories for the paper, which covers doings on Capitol Hill.
His 516th column, by his count, appeared this week.
Eisele, 69, helped found The Hill in 1994 with Martin Tolchin, who retired in 2002.
?It’s been a great experience,? Eisele said, in a story in his paper. ?One of the things I’m proudest of is the fact that we sent so many talented young reporters on to bigger and better things. At least 55 of our former reporters have gone on to major publications and broadcast organizations.?
Asked what he would like as an epitaph, he said, ?He called them as he saw them.?
