The longtime publisher of the Effingham Daily News is leaving the paper.

Steve Raymond, who has served as Daily News publisher since October 1999, will be departing the publication as of June 29.  Raymond Wednesday said he is still deciding his future, but said he'd like to stay in the Effingham area, if possible.

Raymond came to Effingham from Olney, where he had worked as publisher for eight years.  The Daily News is his fifth newspaper, having started working for his father's newspaper, a weekly publication serving Assumption, Moweaqua and Macon.
