(York) -- The York Dispatch will have a new president in the new year. 

Phil Buckner, who has been at the helm of the newspaper since 2004, is transferring leadership to Dave Martens, its publisher.

The 83-year-old Buckner says he's retiring at the end of this month.

Effective January first, Martens will add president of The York Dispatch Publishing Company to his title.

Buckner says he is pleased to pass the torch to a longtime colleague he respects.

Before their time at the Dispatch, Buckner and Martens previously led the York Daily Record.  They've worked together since 1973.

Editor Lori Goodlin says the moves will not mean any changes for readers.
