Temple University's School of Media and Communication will be renamed in honor of longtime adjunct professor and prominent broadcasting executive Lew Klein, the
university announced Wednesday.
The Lew Klein College of Media and Communication will be formally dedicated this spring. The announcement coincides with Klein's receiving a lifetime achievement award from the National Association of Television Program Executives in Miami on Wednesday.
Klein taught at Temple for more than six decades and he and his wife, Janet, recently made a multimillion-dollar gift to the school, which was supported by two additional seven-figure contributions from Temple trustees, Steve Charles, '80, and H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest and his wife, Marguerite.
