SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Larry Burrough, an editor at the old Los Angeles Herald Examiner who later helped the Orange County Register win a Pulitzer Prize, has died. He was 66.

The Register says Burrough died of a brain tumor on Monday in Yakima, Wash.

Burrough was city editor at the Examiner in the 1980s, where he was known for his hard-charging news rivalry with the Los Angeles Times.

He joined the Register in the 1990s, where he was assistant managing editor and held other posts. Under Burrough, the Register won a 1996 Pulitzer for investigative reporting on a fertility clinic fraud at the University of California, Irvine.

Burrough was managing editor at the Denver Post from 2000 to 2002.

He later moved back to his hometown of Ellensburg, Wash.
