Packet, Gazette editor McAden retires, closing 42-year journalism career


Fitz McAden has retired as executive editor of The Island Packet (Hilton Head Island, S.C.) and The Beaufort Gazette.

His 42-year newspaper career has been marked by a dogged pursuit of stories and public accountability.

"You have to dig," he said. "It's not about being negative; it's about getting to the bottom of things and not just trimming the treetops. You've got to get to the bottom of it."
