SAN DIEGO - Neil Morgan, a San Diego journalist whose career spanned more than a half-century and included a stint as editor of The San Diego Tribune, has died at the age of 89.
U-T San Diego reports that Morgan's wife, Judith, said her husband had been ill for some time. He died Saturday at his home in the city's La Jolla area.
Morgan worked at the Tribune from 1950 until 1992 in positions including columnist and editor. He continued writing at The San Diego Union-Tribune, the newspaper created in 1992 from the merger of the San Diego Union and the Tribune.
After he left in 2004, he helped start the nonprofit Voice of San Diego news site.
Morgan authored or co-wrote a dozen books, many with San Diego themes.
