Lancaster Newspapers' CEO Chip Miller retires

LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — The company that publishes daily newspapers in Lancaster will be getting a new chief executive following the retirement of the man who ran the business since 2004.

Harold E. "Chip" Miller retired last week after more than three decades with Lancaster Newspapers Inc., which publishes the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era and Lancaster Sunday News.

Miller, 69, who joined the family-owned company in 1981 and became chief executive eight years ago, told the paper a consultant was studying the organization's structure and systems to help it plan for the long term.

"I view this as a logical time to step aside and let those who will be guiding the organization into the future implement the expert's recommendations," Miller said.

He retired Aug. 21. The company board is expected to consider hiring a successor when it meets next month.

Lancaster Newspapers Inc. owns Lancaster Online, Fly Magazine, Treehouse Digital Marketing, Lancaster Farming Inc., Lancaster County Weeklies Inc. (owner of the Lititz Record Express, Ephrata Review and Susquehanna Printing) and The Pressroom Restaurant.
