Newspaper Group Honors Scaife's Commitment to Journalism


Tribune-Review, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


LANCASTER -- Tribune-Review publisher and philanthropist Dick Scaife was recognized last night for his "continuing commitment to the principles and purpose of newspapers" by the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association.

Scaife, along with Philadelphia Tribune CEO Robert Bogle, received the PNA's Benjamin Franklin Award for Excellence during the group's annual conference. The PNA is the nonprofit trade association for the state's print and online news media.

The awards are named in honor of Ben Franklin, the American patriot, statesman, scientist and writer who also famously worked as a printer and newspaper publisher in Philadelphia.

The award was presented by Brad Bumsted, the Tribune-Review's statehouse correspondent for more than a decade.

Raymond Hartung, treasurer and chief financial officer of Trib Total Media Inc., which owns the Scaife family of newspapers, accepted the award on behalf of Scaife, who was unable to attend.

Trib Total Media publishes eight daily newspapers in Pittsburgh, Greensburg, Tarentum, Connellsville, Kittanning, Monessen and McKeesport, and a score of weeklies across the region.

Scaife said he is "honored to receive this award in the company of such outstanding newspaper men as Robert Bogle."

Being recognized by the PNA for his commitment to journalism and to the communities his newspapers serve, as well as for his personal philanthropy, "is simultaneously humbling and rewarding," Scaife said.

In announcing the award, the PNA said Scaife has "underwritten award-winning investigative journalism and maintains regular overseas reporting, with a permanent foreign correspondent."

"Through his and Trib Total Media's foundations, (he) donates hundreds of thousands of dollars annually to churches, schools, museums, neighborhood improvement efforts and numerous other charitable causes in communities across Southwestern Pennsylvania and beyond.
