TUTV Says Farewell To Ed Dress

TUTV’s incomparable TUTV staff producer, Ed Dress, has decided to retire, completing a vibrant career in Journalism and Higher Education that took him from the newsroom to the classroom.

Ed once said there is a great sense of closure in this decision. After all, Ed left this campus in 1982 with a Temple diploma and returned with a dazzling body of work, and a long list of accolades, recognizing the exemplary work he did as a vital member of the Investigative Reporting Unit at Philadelphia’s NBC10.

As our staff producer, Ed has guided TUTV students in their professional-grade coverage of global events in our region, like the 2015 Papal visit and the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

Ed has since supported our students in the creative development of eclectic, award-winning content, such as The Vibe, Temple Tonight, We Need to Talk, The World at Temple, La Charla, Temple Pilots, QT: Queer Temple, and so many more.

He has also distinguished himself by teaching a broadcast promotion course as an adjunct in the Klein Advertising Department.

Ed is intelligent, tenacious, and, above all, one of the kindest people you will ever meet. He will be missed.
