In 1959, just out of high school, this blogger became a newspaper copyboy at the Evening and Sunday Bulletin (760,000 daily). Promotions to head copyboy, comics editor, and weekly television program listings editor, led in 1963 to news rewrite and features.
In 1965 I moved to Intercounty Publishing as editor of the Valley Forge Sentinel and Conshohocken Recorder, promoted to Sr. VP of the newspaper group (1972), published the West Oak Lane Leader, an African-American community newspaper (1975 to 1993), then president, publisher and CEO of ING’s 18-newspapers in Metro Philadelphia and New Jersey.
Tired of stupid corporate interference, I joined the News Gleaner (2000-2004), and finally retired, while publisher of The Phoenix daily in Phoenixville, PA.
