Gene Roberts (journalist)

Eugene Leslie Roberts, Jr. (born June 15, 1932) is an American journalist and professor of journalism. He has been a national editor of ''The New York Times'', executive editor of ''The Philadelphia Inquirer'' from 1972 to 1990, and managing editor of ''The New York Times'' from 1994 to 1997. Roberts is most known for presiding over ''The Inquirer'''s "Golden Age", a time in which the newspaper was given increased freedom and resources, won 17 Pulitzer Prizes in 18 years, displaced ''The Philadelphia Bulletin'' as the city's "paper of record", and was considered to be Knight Ridder's crown jewel as a profitable enterprise and an influential regional paper.
