Supported by a gift from Newhouse alumnus Peter Horvitz ’76, chairman, president and CEO of Horvitz Newspapers, the Peter A. Horvitz Endowed Chair in Journalism Innovation was established to help lead the Newhouse School’s continued efforts toward expanding teaching and innovation in digital and new media. Dan Pacheco, a digital journalist with 18 years of experience in news and information startups and new product development, was named the inaugural Horvitz Chair in 2012.
