Manny Garcia to replace Statesman editor John Bridges
(Statesman)

After 32 years at the Austin American-Statesman, Executive Editor John Bridges is retiring, the newspaper announced Friday. He will be succeeded by ProPublica's Manny Garcia.

"It's an honor to be given the opportunity to lead the Austin American-Statesman as it turns 150 years old," Garcia told the Statesman. "I'm being handed the keys to a wonderful franchise, with a terrific team and I can't wait for us to begin this journey together."

Garcia led ProPublica's Austin-based investigative partnership with the Texas Tribune. In taking the new role, he will also serve at the organization's vice president.

The transition will take place next month, with Bridges officially leaving the organization in March.
