Trib publisher Scaife, CEO of Philly paper honored by state group
A statewide newspaper trade association is recognizing two Pennsylvania newspaper publishers for their contributions to the industry and their communities.
Tribune-Review publisher and philanthropist Dick Scaife and Philadelphia Tribune CEO Robert Bogle will receive the Benjamin Franklin Award for Excellence from the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association, or PNA.
Established in 1998, the award recognizes individuals who perform an outstanding service or accomplishment to their newspapers, to the newspaper industry in general, to their communities or to the PNA, that reflected positively on the newspaper industry in Pennsylvania.
Scaife is being recognized for his continued commitment to the principles and purpose of newspapers — serving their readers and their communities — as well as his significant contributions to his community, the PNA said.
Bogle in 1989 became the chief executive of The Philadelphia Tribune, America’s oldest continually published black newspaper. The PNA is recognizing his journalistic and entrepreneurial contributions to the black community and his significant work in Philadelphia.
The awards will be presented Oct. 28 during the association’s annual convention at the Lancaster Marriott. The PNA, founded in 1925, is the nonprofit trade association for print and online news media in Pennsylvania.
