AUSTIN, Texas — At the request of the original donors and with approval from the University of Texas System Board of Regents, the Belo Center for New Media on the UT Austin campus has been renamed the G. B. Dealey Center for New Media. This building is part of the Moody College of Communication complex.
George Bannerman (G. B.) Dealey, along with his grandsons Joe M. Dealey, ’41; H. Ben Decherd, ’36; and James M. Moroney, Jr., ’43, built the foundation for the A. H. Belo Corporation as a modern journalistic institution by founding and growing The Dallas Morning News. A. H. Belo Corporation recently received approval from its shareholders to change its corporate name to DallasNews Corporation.
G. B. Dealey, a member of the Texas Newspaper Hall of Fame, was a legend in journalism and media. The Moody College of Communication is proud to honor his legacy with the renaming of this building.
The original donors to the Center for New Media are The Belo Foundation, Maureen and Robert Decherd, the Estate of James M. Moroney, Jr., and the Jim and Lynn Moroney Family Foundation.
Signs outside and throughout the building will be changed during the coming months to reflect the center’s new name
