NEW YORK (AP) — Former New York Newsday and Village Voice editor Donald Forst has died. He was 81.

Forst's companion, Val Haynes, says he died Saturday at St. Peter's Hospital in Albany of complications of colon cancer.

Forst worked at more than a dozen newspapers and magazines including The New York Times, the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, the New York Post and the Boston Herald.

He was editor-in-chief of New York Newsday from 1985 to 1995, then held the same position at The Village Voice until 2005.
