Albany Biz Review editor Hendricks is retiring
Mike Hendricks, the editor of the Albany Business Review, is retiring from the American City Business Journals paper after running it for 18 years.
Managing editor Melissa Mangini writes, “Hendricks joined the Business Review as editor in 2000 after 27 years with the Associated Press.
“He has made a profound impact on the publication and many journalists over the years. Hendricks’ focus on quality journalism and his insistence on excellence has earned the paper many awards over the years — and more importantly, the respect of the business community. He prided himself on making the newsroom a place for journalists to do their best work.
“Under Hendricks’ leadership, the Albany Business Review has consistently been recognized as one of the top papers in the state by the New York Press Association. Awards have included general excellence, in-depth reporting and feature writing, among others. Hendricks has also been recognized for his reporting and column writing four times by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers.
“Before joining the Business Review, Hendricks was the news editor of the AP’s Albany bureau for 18 years. The Albany bureau was nationally known for its reporting and being a training ground for young journalists.”
