FILE - In this Nov. 12, 1969 photo, Conrad Fink is shown in Madison, Wis. Fink, a longtime University of Georgia journalism professor and former Associated Press executive, has died in Athens at age 80. E. Culpepper Clark, dean of the university's journalism school, confirmed to The AP that Fink died early Saturday, Jan. 14, 2012 after battling prostate cancer for two decades. Fink had taught at UGA since 1983. Clark said he "was inimitable and is irreplaceable."
