'MCN' Contributor Brent Felgner Dies
Veteran Journalist, 57, Succumbed To Cancer
MCN Staff 10/28/2009 2:59:20 PM

Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. Veteran business journalist and Multichannel News copy editor and contributor Brent Felgner, 57, passed away from cancer here Oct. 26 in his father's home, to which he and his wife had relocated earlier this year.

"We're all shocked and saddened by the sudden loss of a great friend, a witty editor and a consummate professional," said MCN editor in chief Mark Robichaux. "Brent can't be replaced in our hearts. Our lives are richer for having known him."

A journalist with broad interests, Felgner also contributed as a writer and an editor to several other publications owned by MCN parent Reed Business Information. They included Broadcasting and Cable, TWICE, Playthings, Gifts & Decorative Accessories and Home Textiles Today. His work for Playthings covering an epochal shift in the New York toy industry earned the magazine a Neal Award, the trade publishing industry's highest journalism prize.

Felgner began his association with Home Textiles Today in 1989 and in the years since covered news, blogged, edited articles and designed pages for various projects.
It was at HTT that Felgner met and married his wife, Desiree Nunez, who at the time was the publication's art director. In 1997, the pair formed their own graphic, design and editorial services company, Gotham Media Works.

He is survived by his wife, his father, Hans; and his son from a former marriage, Scott.

There will be no formal services in Florida.

Later this year, the family will organize a memorial service in New York for friends and colleagues. Anyone wishing to commemorate his life is asked to donate to the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Society of Professional Journalists. Checks should be made out to "Sigma Delta Chi Foundation" and sent to: Sigma Delta Chi Foundation, Eugene S. Pulliam National Journalism Center, 3909 N Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN 46208. If possible, include a small note or notation on the memo line of the check to read: "In Memory of Brent Felgner."
