ME in the news. Sort of. Happy Bday PW!

Philadelphia Weekly recently put out a 40th Anniversary Issue.  A very interesting read on the changing times of Philadelphia, the evolution of newspapers, and the print/media/revenue struggle.

PW’s Most Memorable Interns:

What’s the worst thing you were ever asked to do as a PW intern?

Tom Acox: Jim Newell and I were sent to Jessica Pressler and Doree Shafrir’s apartment to help them move. They gave us beer and pizza, which was awesome. I emailed Jessica a lead for a story years later that started, “Hey, you might remember me, I helped carry Doree’s couch.”

Which staffer did you most look up to and why?

Tom Acox: Neil Ferguson was the coolest guy going. He actually inspired a character in a screenplay I was writing at the time (look for it in theaters in the summer 2017!).
