LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - John Kirkpatrick, a prominent central Pennsylvania newspaper executive, is stepping down as president of LNP.

The Lancaster-based news company announced Kirkpatrick’s resignation Thursday.

In a letter to LNP publisher and board chairman Robert Krasne, Kirkpatrick cites his work goals and home-life balance among the reasons he is stepping down.

He says it’s important for the company to find someone who can fully commit to the company for years to come.

Kirkpatrick had been at LNP since 2013. He was previously publisher and president of The Patriot-News in Harrisburg. It was under his leadership that the Patriot-News won its first Pulitzer Prize in 2012 for its coverage of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal at Penn State University.
