"He was the rarest of executive talent, with equal measures of pragmatism and warmth, and his leadership lessons are part of Hearst's DNA."

Danzig was also a senior Hearst executive a member of the company's board of directors.

"Bob's contributions to Hearst went beyond the newspaper division," said Frank A. Bennack Jr., executive vice chairman and former CEO of Hearst. "He mentored and encouraged young talent and created opportunities for all who were lucky enough to be taken under his wing. He was also among my longest serving and most beloved and admired partners."

Danzig wrote in a personal reflection that "foster care children often drift through life because there is no force to offer encouragement or guidance." But he credited several adults for encouraging him to succeed, including a social worker named Mae Morse who told him at the age of 12, "You are worthwhile."

Danzig first joined Hearst as an office boy for the Times Union in Albany after graduating high school in 1950. After serving in the Navy during the Korean War, he returned to the newspaper as an ad salesman and attended Sienna College at night, graduating with honours in 1962.
