Doug LeDuc

Doug LeDuc, who has covered business, manufacturing and technology for the Fort Wayne Business Weekly, is retiring from the paper.

Lisa Esquivel Long of the Business Weekly writes, “LeDuc started at Business Weekly in 2006, just a year after the business journal started. Before that he covered business news at The News-Sentinel 1989-2006. He was first hired as a business journalist by the Nashville Business Journal, where he worked 1986-1989.

“‘My earliest career aspirations were inspired by A.A. Milne,’ he said. ‘Eventually my tastes evolved from Winnie-the-Pooh fan fiction to journalism, so I got a bachelor’s degree in that at Brigham Young University and a master’s degree at Northwestern University.

“‘I learned business journalism at Northwestern from a former Chicago Sun Times business editor.’”
