Brian Tierney, former part-owner and publisher of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News, and Philly.com, has agreed to help advise the company's interim publisher, H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, on advertising strategy, Lenfest said Monday.
Tierney led the company, then known as Philadelphia Media Holdings L.L.C., from 2006 to 2010.
He currently is chief executive officer of Brian Communications, a public relations and advertising agency with offices in Conshohocken.
Lenfest said Tierney was not leaving his firm, but would devote time as a consultant to The Inquirer's company, now named Interstate General Media.
"The Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News, and Philly.com play a fundamental role in our civic life," Tierney said in a statement. "If, during this transition period, my expertise and qualifications can help the organization, I want to do so."
