CLEVELAND (AP) - The president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland plans to retire by the end of next year.

Terry Stewart announced his retirement plans Friday and said the Rock Hall will hire a search firm to find a replacement.

The 66-year-old Stewart has led the Rock Hall since 1999.

Under Stewart’s leadership, the Rock Hall improved its bottom line, renovated the museum and established a library and archives.

Stewart says the new Rock Hall leader should have a broad knowledge and passion for rock music.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum opened in 1995 next to Lake Erie in downtown Cleveland.
