Manny Garcia, editor of El Nuevo Herald, announced Wednesday he is leaving the newspaper and will accept an executive position with another Florida newspaper company.

"This has been an extremely difficult decision for me to make because being editor of El Nuevo Herald has been the most satisfying experience in my 23 year career at the Miami Herald Media Company," said Garcia, whose last day will be Oct. 18.

Garcia took over as editor of El Nuevo Herald in 2009 after a long career at the Miami Herald, where he worked as a police and courts reporter, city editor and senior editor.

During his tenure as editor of El Nuevo Herald, the newspaper became the first Spanish-language medium to be named a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

Garcia was announced Thursday as the new editor of the Naples Daily News in Collier County.

David Landsberg, president and publisher of the Miami Herald Media Company, praised Garcia's contributions to the newspaper during his long-career and announced he will begin the search for a new El Nuevo Herald editor.

I remember being followed home one day by a bully who wanted to start a fight. When I kept ignoring her, she soon turned, with her followers and went home. Unlike some of today’s bullies, she didn’t try to hit me. She was just all mouth, spitting out insulting remarks.
