Editor and Publisher Paul Anger — who guided theDetroit Free Press as it accelerated into digital publication and did award-winning reporting of Detroit’s historic last decade — announced today that he plans to retire in May after 10 years in Detroit and almost five decades in journalism.


Under Anger, the Free Press has won four national Emmy Awards for video, two national Edward R. Murrow Awards, and two Pulitzer Prizes for digging deep into Detroit’s issues — one in Local Reporting in 2009 for exposing corruption in former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s administration, the other in Commentary in 2014 for columns by Editorial Page Editor Stephen Henderson as the city slid into bankruptcy.
