Award-winning investigative reporter and El Nuevo Herald executive editor Manny Garcia has been named editor of the Naples Daily News.
Garcia replaces Phil Lewis, who retired after 16 years in July. Garcia announced his resignation from El Nuevo Herald Wednesday. He will start his new post Oct. 21.
Garcia told the Naples Daily News (http://bit.ly/1h5n06x ) he sees the newspaper's team as "a diamond in the rough, with tremendous opportunity to grow and succeed and do even better work."
Garcia spent 23 years as a reporter and editor at the Miami Herald Company. He was part of two Pulitzer Prize-winning teams. During his tenure as editor of El Nuevo Herald, the paper was named a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize in 2010, the first Spanish-language media outlet to achieve such recognition.
