Scaife's extensive involvement in the publishing industry - he is the owner and Chairman of the Board of the Tribune-Review as well as a number of radio stations - has brought a refreshing alternative voice to the media markets of Western Pennsylvania, including his hometown of Pittsburgh. His enduring commitment to the free society is evident in his role as a director with the Pittsburgh World Affairs Council and his service on the boards of the Hoover Institution, Pepperdine University and other major educational institutions.
During the Reagan and Bush administrations, Scaife served as a presidentially appointed member of the U.S. Advisory Commission for Public Diplomacy, which oversees the U.S. Information Agency. One of the Pittsburgh area's leading philanthropists - he chairs the Sarah Scaife Foundation, The Allegheny Foundation and the Carthage Foundation - Scaife is a frequent speaker and commentator on U.S. strategic interests.
