Denver Post editor Gregory L. Moore on Tuesday resigned from the paper he has led through a period of tumult and transformation.

Moore, 61, who led the paper to four Pulitzer Prizes during his 14-year tenure, will depart on April 1.

"The Denver Post will continue its outstanding work," he said. "There is strong and stable leadership in place. But it's time for a fresh voice to lead from the corner office. After 14 years, I've decided it's time for new challenges and I will step down as editor of this great newspaper."

Publisher Mac Tully said a national search for Moore's replacement will begin soon. In the interim, news director Lee Ann Colacioppo will lead the newsrooom. She also is a candidate for the job.
