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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
