A New Day for Newsday   

Long Island's Newsday recently said goodbye to Editor Anthony Marro who had been with the paper for almost 35 years.

Thirty-five years after joining Newsday, Editor Anthony Marro, 61, retires. Another Newsday veteran, Managing Editor Howard Schneider, replaces him.

Marro says he's "always enjoyed this job. I've taken a great deal of satisfaction in it." But he looks forward to doing "some sort of writing" in Old Bennington, Vermont, where he and his wife, Jacqueline, own a home. Marro, who hails from Vermont, got his start at the Rutland Herald newsroom at 16.

Marro joined Newsday in 1968 after a year of journalism school at Columbia University, which followed six months of basic training for the National Guard. Friend and colleague Jim Toedtman, now Newsday's associate editor, remembers Marro's tenacity as a young reporter. While covering the Ted Kennedy car crash in 1969, Marro jumped off the narrow bridge between Chappaquiddick and Edgartown to check the currents of the water Kennedy's car fell into. It didn't prove anything, and "it was not one of the great moments in investigative reporting," Marro jokes.

Except for stints at Newsweek and the New York Times during the Watergate era, Marro spent his career at Newsday.

Schneider sees three challenges ahead for the paper: converging the newspaper with other media, improving the Long Island edition, and increasing growth in New York City. "I think it's going to be a very dynamic time for us."
