TUTV will air the 2018 Lew Klein Alumni in the Media Awards live on Friday, October 5 at noon and 8 p.m. Named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History, Charles Barkley has followed up his Hall of Fame basketball career with an Emmy-winning television career and has evolved to become a household name and pop culture icon. Barkley will receive the Lew Klein Excellence in the Media Award at the ceremony.
This event was sponsored by TUTV and the Kal and Lucille Rudman Foundation. The Lew Klein Alumni in the Media Awards and the Rising Star Award were established through the generosity of the H.F. (Gerry) and Marguerite Lenfest and Walter and Leonore Annenberg through the Annenberg Foundation. These awards, named in honor of Klein College namesake, respected Temple University adjunct professor and legendary broadcast executive Lew Klein, celebrate outstanding members of the media whose achievements bring honor to their professions. Funds raised by the event directly benefit student travel, internships and research. Learn more about the Lew Klein Awards.
