“I learned more about handling media in the last 60 minutes than in the past six years of crisis management.”


MIT Crisis Management and Business Continuity course

“Joe Sciacca may be known to the rest of the world as an extraordinary and innovative journalist, but I learned very quickly that he is an equally extraordinary teacher. He has provided students in majors across campus opportunities to engage.”


Director, Fitzwater Center for Communication

“Sciacca’s resume yields a portrait of a solid journalist who came up through the ranks with the smell of newsprint trailing him. But the source of his success is disruption and reaching both new markets and providing alternatives to the existing print paper. He has fearlessly explored the potential of technology in journalism.”


Former Franklin Pierce University president

“A civic treasure. Skilled, steady leader in, let’s face it, tough times for journalists and journalism.”
