NORFOLK (AP) - Another member of the Huse family has become publisher of the Norfolk Daily News. Jerry Huse announced Wednesday that he has stepped down in favor of his son, Bill.
Jerry Huse will remain president of the Daily News. Bill Huse's great-great-grandfather, William Huse, in 1888 became publisher and owner of the Daily News in partnership with his son, W.N. Huse. W.N. Huse followed as publisher until he died in 1913. His son, Gene Huse, took over until 1956, when Jerry Huse became publisher. Bill Huse and his family live in Atlanta, where they are active with a missionary organization. He says technology and an easy ability to travel to Norfolk will let him be publisher of the Daily News even though he won't be living in Norfolk.
