I’m pleased to report that Tom Ferrick joins AxisPhilly staff today as its Interim Director and Editor. Tom’s main goal will be to help build the news product and assure the continued development of the organization’s ability to produce public affairs reporting.
He will also oversee business matters with the support of the Axis staff and the Axis Board of Directors. His weekly column in AxisPhilly will continue.
Tom’s term will run until a permanent director is found. In the meantime, his widely respected reporting skills and editorial voice will help continue to build the organization during a period of transition.
We are fortunate to have him serve in this role.
