HARRISON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - A veteran newsman who served as the publisher and executive editor of a southern New Jersey newspaper will be leaving at month’s end.

The South Jersey Times says both of Joseph Owens’ positions were eliminated as part of a restructuring this month. He’d held the posts since May 2013.

Owens has worked as an editor and reporter for more than 30 years, winning numerous awards.

He previously was editor and vice president of content at The Express-Times in Easton, Pennsylvania, where he helped lead the launch of its website. Before that, he served in various positions at the Times Herald in Norristown, Pennsylvania, including managing editor, reporter, sports editor and columnist.

A Philadelphia native, Owens started his newspaper career in 1978 as a 15-year-old copy boy at the now-defunct Philadelphia Bulletin.
