Lew Klein–Philadelphia broadcast pioneer, educator, and namesake of Temple’s Klein College of Media and Communication–passed away Wednesday. A great friend to the station and a mentor who touched the lives of many across this city and the field of journalism, Lew Klein also taught at Klein College for more than sixty years. Klein was honored several times at Temple for his service to the university and his extraordinary career, culminating with the university’s School of Media and Communication being renamed the Lew Klein College of Media and Communication in March 2017.
