Arthur Fennell

...
Yet in the months before Arthur Fennell became NABJ's first "on-air" president, only six years after attending his first convention, he was still unknown to many longtime members.
Fennell had been a chapter leader in two cities and a two-term regional director.But his was the first unopposed presidential campaign since the early years, so there were questions.Would he be all style and no substance?Which direction would he take the association?Could he handle the pressure?
Two years later - after moneymaking conventions in Nashville and Chicago, a new NABJ Media Institute, a renewed bond between the national board of directors and membership, a headquarters relocation and consistent national exposure - Fennell had erased all doubts.
His board was filled with several new members, including five of whom he had to appoint because of vacancies.But Fennell used finely honed interpersonal skills to transform a climate of mistrust and hostility into enthusiasm and consensus.
"Arthur was a great president," said Monroe Anderson, director of station services and community affairs for WBBM-TV in Chicago and the Region V director on Fennell's board.
...
"You wanted to help Arthur out.
...
Six months into his term, Fennell held a press conference in New Orleans, with his board of directors and several chapter presidents standing with him, to say the city risked losing a future NABJ convention because of Louisiana's new executive order limiting affirmative action.
Later that year, in Nashville, Fennell shared the stage at different times with Vice President Al Gore; Bob Dole and Jack Kemp, the 1996 Republican presidential ticket, and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. (A photo of Fennell and Dole ran on the front page of the New York Times.) That same week, Fennell was again on stage during the annual NABJ awards ceremony, which for the only time was taped for later national broadcast on Black Entertainment Television (BET).Later that year, in Nashville, Fennell shared the stage at different times with Vice President Al Gore; Bob Dole and Jack Kemp, the 1996 Republican presidential ticket, and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

...
The next year in Chicago, Fennell walked on stage with Bill Clinton in one of NABJ's most profound national moments.
...
But Fennell wasn't just a figurehead.He could be tough, willing to stand up against the most intimidating foes to fight for NABJ members.
When the Fruit of Islam (security team) insisted on body-searching members before letting them into the plenary session to hear Farrakhan, the president went into the bowels of the convention center and found the minister.Interrupting an interview of the minister by NABJ students, Fennell told him the event would be cancelled if his bodyguards didn't desist.
...
Fennell refused to compromise the convention for Clinton's visit.
...
They said the tables have to go and Arthur would not have it.
...
Some members also felt that Fennell shied away from challenging media executives about increasing newsroom diversity.
A self-described sports nut and golf addict, Fennell responded to such criticism as par for the course for TV anchors, and for NABJ presidents.Still, he admits concentrating on increasing NABJ's profile and leaving it stronger for his successors.
"My theory was, if this organization was lifted up to a position of power, and people could see its members' intellect and the prestige, then we could better meet some of the goals that we had been struggling for years to obtain," he said unapologetically.
Make no mistake, however, the Fennell administration did tackle meaty issues.He assembled an editorial board of respected print journalists to address such concerns as newsroom diversity, media coverage of Africa and the CIA's role in supplying drugs to black neighborhoods.The board's views were published as a syndicated column, "NABJ Speaks," under his byline in many black newspapers and even some mainstream publications.The editorial board also contributed to the NABJ Journal, which was revamped from a newsletter into a magazine.
"Arthur did an excellent job in making sure we were out front on a lot of issues that were of concern to us as black journalists and to us as black people," said Paula Madison, a former NABJ executive board member who is vice president and news director of WNBC-TV in New York.
...
A prodigious fund raiser, Fennell also strived to expand NABJ internally.Many point to the NABJ Media Institute as one of his hallmarks.
...
Executive Director Wooten credited Fennell with supporting her efforts to revamp the association's' financial record keeping.
...
Many noted that Fennell's administration was rare in that it did not have strife between the president or executive committee and the executive director.
"Arthur allowed me to do my job," Wooten said simply.
...
Fennell was more interested in looking long term.He appointed a multi-tiered committee of veteran members to produce a five-year strategic plan.It focused on finance, fund raising, marketing, programs, membership services, the national office, local chapters, technology and governance.
"I was determined to use them," Fennell said of the many longtime and new members who served on committees and task forces.
...
Fennell, now 40, left WCAU shortly after stepping down as NABJ president to start his own media consulting company.He is now managing editor/anchor of Comcast Network, a regional news show in Philadelphia.
