Carl Leubsdorf, the longtime Washington bureau chief of The Dallas Morning News, will retire at the end of this year after a career as a top national affairs writer.
Mr. Leubsdorf will continue to write his column for The News, as he has since 1981. The column will be published online every week and once every two weeks in the printed newspaper.
“I’ve had a wonderful run, and I’ll be glad that I can keep my hand in,” he said.
Todd Gillman, a Washington correspondent with The News, will take over as bureau chief.
