Chris Krewson

Chris Krewson is the Editor of BillyPenn. He’s the former executive editor, online of The Philadelphia Inquirer, where he worked from 2007-2010, leading the digital efforts of Pennsylvania’s largest newspaper. While at the Inquirer, Chris launched a quick-response breaking news team in the newsroom. He revamped the staff’s multimedia efforts, and oversaw the newsroom’s Continuous News Operation, including breaking news and blog posts from Metro, Sports, Science and Medicine, Business and Features desks. During this time, he watched two spontaneous parades down Broad Street within a month of each other: After the Phillies 2008 World Series win, and President Obama’s historic election.

Chris also launched and oversaw StudentUnion34.com, a Web site for and by college students in the Philadelphia region whose alumni graduated to full-time jobs at the New York Times, the Houston Chronicle, Philly.com and the Philadelphia Metro.

Prior to joining BillyPenn, Chris spent four years in Hollywood, running the digital editorial efforts of both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. Before his time at the Inquirer, Chris spent nearly eight years in a variety of digital roles at The Morning Call, a Tribune Publishing newspaper in Allentown, Pa. He’s a Penn State graduate and a proud husband to Allisyn and father to Emma and Owen, who live in the ‘burbs.
