On the Rocky Statue in Billy Penn

An article I wrote about the Rocky statue published in Billy Penn, January 10, 2023.

The backstory is about a Philadelphia Daily News Op-Ed I wrote on the statue in 1996. Below is the Daily News Editorial Board’s response to that piece.

The occasion for my Billy Penn article is the launch of a new WHYY/NPR podcast series called “The Statue,” hosted by Paul Farber.

The Billy Penn piece was also republished in The Philadelphia Tribune, Sunday Jan. 15, 2023.
