Longtime Buffalo News leader Stan Lipsey dies at 89

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Longtime publisher for The Buffalo News, Stan Lipsey, has died at age 89.

The Buffalo News said Lipsey became News publisher in 1983. He held this position until 2012, when he became publisher emeritus.

While with The Buffalo News, they say Lipsey changed the paper from an evening publication to an all day paper and later had it become a morning paper. In addition to that, the company also claimed Lipsey “transformed it into a digital presence.”

The Buffalo News spoke highly of the Nebraska native, calling him “a preservationist, philanthropist and community leader.”

Lipsey died in his California home Tuesday morning, according to The Buffalo News.
