Robert G. Hoyt,

81, the founder of the National Catholic Reporter, an independent weekly newspaper that helped bring professional journalistic standards to the Catholic press, died Thursday in New York after a heart attack.

Mr. Hoyt started the newspaper in 1964 at a time when most Catholic newspapers and magazines were published by dioceses or religious orders.

Noel Fox,

63, a former bass singer with the Oak Ridge Boys who became a power in the music business, died Thursday in Nashville, Tenn., after surgery.

He sang with the Oak Ridge Boys for five years before leaving in 1972. In 1978, Mr. Fox began managing the Oak Ridge Boys' publishing entity, Silverline/Goldline Music Inc. He later served as vice president of MCA Music/Nashville and president of Maypop Music Group, which was owned by members of the group Alabama.
