Published:

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Lee Carter announced this week that he'll be retiring at the end of this year as publisher and vice president of the Standard-Examiner in Ogden, Utah.

He has been in the position since 2005. He spent 37 years with Sandusky Newspapers Inc., working for various publications. He said feels lucky to have worked with so many dedicated and talented employees.

Carter's career began as a newspaper carrier out of high school for the Sandusky Register in Ohio. He soon moved up to circulation director. In 1996, he was promoted to publisher of the company's Grand Haven Tribune in Michigan and returned to the Sandusky Register as publisher in 2002.

He plans to stay in Ogden with his wife, Sally Fultz Carter, who is volunteer coordinator for the United Way of Northern Utah.

A search will begin immediately for a new publisher for the Standard-Examiner.
