Gerry Lenfest, who saved the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News with funding from the Lenfest Institute for Journalism (among hundreds of other city initiatives) will be remembered for his unwavering generosity.
A week later, the formation of the Institute of Journalism in New Media is still sending ripples through the Philadelphia journalism community
Pedro Ramos joined the Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News and philly.com owner H. F. (Gerry) Lenfest and publisher Terry Egger in announcing the formation of the Institute for Journalism in New Media Tuesday morning.
The Philadelphia Opportunities Industrialization Center received a $150,000 from Gerry Lenfest's organization to launch a tech bootcamp for youth in the city of Philadelphia. Comcast will also give an additional $25,000 toward the pilot program, which will be called CODE OIC.
