Temple University’s School of Media and Communication will work with The Dallas Morning News, Philadelphia Media Network and the Miami Herald as places to test mobile and digital practices aimed at legacy newsrooms. The project, called the Knight-Temple Table Stakes Project, was announced Monday and is funded by $1.3 million from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Egger succeeds Gerry Lenfest, who owns the company, as publisher. According to a release from Philadelphia Media Network, Lenfest will remain involved with company strategy.
