Letter from the Publisher: Fall 2016

By John Colabelli | August 10, 2016 | People National

The latest from Philadephia Style's Publisher, John Colabelli.


With the CBS 3 team at Best of Style; with Joseph and Kathy McKeown at the McKeown Foundation’s 25th Annual Golf Classic; with Sabrina Tamburino Thorne, Steve Thorne, Carol Tamburino, Craig Spitzer, John and Rachel Paz, Lauren Colabelli, and Garrett Getlin Snider at Ball on the Square.

Last year at this time all talk was centered around the Pope’s visit to Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families. In July, the City of Brotherly Love welcomed the 2016 Democratic National Convention. These two pinnacle events in local history couldn’t be more different--except for one thing. Both were major media moments for Philadelphia.

The attention our city received was astronomical, and the economic benefit of hosting these large-scale gatherings will only impact the Greater Philadelphia region in a positive way for years to come. This is just the beginning: Philadelphia is poised to become a regular destination for the largest, most important international events.

Here at Philadelphia Style, our local footprint continues to grow. During our annual Best of Style event at the Kimmel Center in July, Philadelphia Style and CBS Radio’s KYW Newsradio 1060 announced the launch of our co-branded lifestyle website, The outlet allows readers to enjoy Philadelphia Style articles, exclusive guest columns and content, photo galleries from our events, and more.

This new, more dynamic online experience represents a cross section of both news and lifestyle content for Philadelphia residents and visitors alike. We will have plenty to cover as we move into the busy fall season in Philadelphia and look forward to giving you a first look at the biggest and best happenings in the city and suburbs.
