“The passion, tenacity, and dedication of the KYW newsroom is unrivaled,” said Koppeser. “Having the privilege of working alongside and learning from these award-winning journalists inspires me every day.”
“KYW Newsradio is a venerable newsroom, a cherished institution, and a group of the finest journalists in Philadelphia, but it’s much more than that too,” said Rickert. “It’s the pulse of this city, the soundtrack for generations, and in times of trouble and uncertainty, a critical lifeline for millions.”
