SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Longtime journalist and Freedom Forum executive Jack Marsh has retired.

He most recently was president of the Al Neuharth Media Center at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion.

Marsh turned 65 in April and will continue to live with his family in Sioux Falls. He plans to do consulting and volunteer.

Marsh worked as a reporter, editor and publisher at six Gannett newspapers, including six years as executive editor of the Argus Leader in Sioux Falls.

He left Gannett in 1998 and joined the Freedom Forum, a non-partisan foundation based at the Newseum in Washington.
