Longtime ICFJ President David Anable passes away


The board and staff of the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) mourn the death of longtime President David Anable, who expertly led the organization through a period of profound media transition from 1997 to 2004. 

Anable, 84, died Aug. 13 in Portland, Maine, surrounded by his family.

At ICFJ, Anable was a steady leader beloved by staff, board members and partners. A native Englishman, he had a wry sense of humor and an easy-going demeanor, but he was unflinching in his commitment to high-quality and ethical journalism. ICFJ’s roots were in print journalism, and Anable helped pilot the organization into an age when digital media began its ascent.
