Officially introducing the Klein College of Media and Communication

One of Temple’s funniest Owls, Bob Saget, took the stage to honor his longtime mentor and friend, Lew Klein, during the college’s renaming ceremony.

Alumnus Bob Saget emceed the event and, of course, started Snapchatting as soon as he hit the stage.

Last week, the School of Media and Communication was officially renamed Klein College of Media and Communication to honor broadcasting pioneer Lew Klein. The celebratory ceremony was full of glimpses into Klein’s life and career, overwhelming gratitude from colleagues and students, and laughs, many of which we can thank comedian Bob Saget, KLN ’78, for.
