OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The executive editor of the nonprofit journalism corporation Oklahoma Watch is stepping down.

David Fritze said in an email to supporters on Friday that he plans to retire later this year. Fritze has spent more than four decades in the news industry, including the last seven years at Oklahoma Watch. Before that, he was a senior editor at The Arizona Republic for two decades.

Oklahoma Watch Board Chairman Joe Hight says that the company plans to restructure and hire both an executive director and an executive editor to replace Fritze.
