DETROIT – The Detroit Free Press announced Friday executive editor Robert Huschka is leaving the newspaper after nearly two years. 

The newspaper released this statement from Huschka:

"After 18 tremendous years at the Detroit Free Press, it's time for me to leave the newsroom and move on to my next adventure,’’ Huschka said. “I'd like to thank Gannett and my award-winning colleagues at the Free Press for their amazing effort and support during my time leading Michigan's oldest newsroom. I'm proud of the work we've done here, and for the small part I've played in our motto, 'On Guard For 187 Years.' I'm excited about my next chapter and committed to telling stories that inform, engage and empower the citizens of Detroit and Michigan."

The Free Press will be conducting a national search for Huschka's replacement.
