NPR senior biz editor Geewax to teach at Georgia
Marilyn Geewax, a senior business editor at NPR, will serve as an Industry Fellow with the James M. Cox Jr. Institute for Journalism Innovation, Management and Leadership during the spring 2018 semester at the University of Georgia.
Geewax, who has worked for NPR since 2008, will present six open lectures during the semester and will serve as a training resource for students taking a business journalism course at the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Geewax’s appointment was announced Friday in New York during the fall conference of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW). She is a SABEW board member and co-chairs its First Amendment Committee.
“Thank you for giving me an opportunity to share my passion for business journalism,” Geewax said. “We can maintain a healthy economy and reliable U.S. Treasury only if journalists pursue and present facts and context to help taxpayers, workers and business owners make wise choices. Helping to prepare a new generation for that challenge is an honor. I look forward to working with UGA students.”
