TCU journalism school chief says he'll retire

 

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Texas Christian University will begin searching for a new director of its Schieffer School of Journalism after John Lumpkin's retirement.

Lumpkin announced in an email to students on Friday that he would retire when his contract expires next spring. The 67-year-old longtime journalist came to TCU in 2009 after a long career at The Associated Press. In his email, he said he had always planned to leave the position after five years.

Lumpkin was the AP's longtime Texas chief of bureau before becoming a vice president. Under his direction, the Schieffer School built a multimillion-dollar expansion and renovation to house modern production technology and a high-definition television news studio.

TCU hopes to choose a new director by November.
