Arizona Republic biz reporter dies
Glen Creno, who was an Arizona Republic business reporter now covering general assignment, died Saturday at the age of 59.
Laurie Merrill and Luci Scott write, “He started his career in Phoenix in 1981 as a reporter for The Phoenix Gazette. When the papers merged in 1995, he joined The Republic, covering retail and real estate.
“Republic business editor Kathy Tulumello said Creno was wonderful to work with because he was easygoing and had a positive outlook.
“‘He was an extremely competent reporter and covered a number of important stories not only in retail and real estate, but I knew him first as a crime reporter in his early years at The Phoenix Gazette,‘ she said.
“Creno spent many years writing for the Business section, where he covered the highs and lows of Arizona’s real-estate cycle.”
