GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The former publisher of the Green Bay Press-Gazette and president of the Packers Hall of Fame board has died. He was 75.
Michael Gage's wife, Patty Gage, said he died Sunday of heart problems after collapsing Thursday.
The newspaper reports (http://gbpg.net/UyjnzB) Gage retired in 1992, ending his family's dynasty as operators of the paper.
