Lansing | Former publisher Deliyanne dies at 89
Gregory Deliyanne was publisher of the Lansing State Journal from 1975 to 1986, including 15 years after Gannett bought the newspaper in 1971. He died Saturday, the Michigan newspaper reported yesterday.
"The only avenue to credibility is fairness," Deliyanne once said, "and fairness is the most important word in the field of journalism."
His funeral is scheduled for tomorrow, according his obituary.
