Robert Bush appointed Advertising Director of the Philadelphia Tribune

(December 28, 2009) The Philadelphia Tribune, the nation's oldest continuously published African-American newspaper, has announced the addition of Robert Bush as Advertising Director.

"It is a privilege to be working with The Philadelphia Tribune and the very dynamic team Mr. Bogle has assembled. This is one of the top newspapers anywhere in the country and I look forward to contributing to its continued success," said Bush.

Al Thomas, The Philadelphia Tribune's long time Advertising Director, remains in that post, and both men will report to Robert W. Bogle, President and CEO.

Bush brings years of advertising sales and marketing experience to the position. "We are pleased that Mr. Bush has joined the organization and we look to him to exhibit some of the strong skills that he brings to this newspaper," said Bogle.

Bush previously served as president of the National Newspaper Publishers Association's (NNPA) Advertising and Marketing Group. The NNPA is the trade association for more than 200 African-American newspapers in the nation.

The full service marketing firm plans, places and develops advertising campaigns designed to reach the core demographics of the African-American community through newspaper, magazine, Internet and radio outlets throughout the country.

Previously, Bush served as vice president for the Multicultural Division at Ethnic Print Media Group, (EPMG) where he was in charge of developing a link with advertisers and Black consumers utilizing various media outlets throughout the print industry. His other responsibilities included brand development for EPMG and the development of marketing strategies for national markets. In addition, Bush was the General Sales Manager of The Wave Newspapers in Los Angeles, Calif.

He has also served as a board member for the California Newspaper Advertising Executive Association and has participated in both the Los Angeles Latino and Black Business Expos.

The Philadelphia Tribune is America's oldest and the Greater Philadelphia region's largest newspaper reflecting the African-American experience.  Established in 1884 by Christopher J. Perry, and currently led by its publisher, Robert W. Bogle, The Tribune is headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1995, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2003, 2004 and 2008 the National Newspaper Publishers Association honored the Tribune with the Russwurm Award, the highest honor to "Best Newspaper in America".
