A friend to the community media field and a champion of public interest communications passed away this past week. Many members of ACM are saddened to have heard the news of Charles Benton’s death this past week. He was a distinctive, generous and passionate advocate for our field and for numerous causes that benefited the public interest in telecommunications in the past forty years. His legacy lives with us all, and should be remembered and championed in years to come.
