Fred Kinne dead at 93

From the San Diego Union-Tribune:

Fred Kinne, an unflappable editor who helped lead The Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the 1978 PSA plane crash, died Sunday night in La Mesa. He was 93.

In a newsroom, Mr. Kinne was a commanding figure who was calm under fire and had a way of eliciting the best from people. His long journalism career also included editing positions at the San Diego Daily Journal and The San Diego Union.
