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 Oct. 13 in New York during the Fall Conference of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. She is an SABEW board member and co-chairs its First Amendment Committee.

Geewax's Industry Fellow lectures for 2018 will be held in Studio 100 of the Grady College at 11:15 a.m. on Jan. 22, Feb. 5, 19, 26, March 26 and April 9.

In addition to assigning and editing business radio stories, Geewax often writes for the NPR website and regularly discusses economic issues on NPR shows, including Here & Now and the weekend edition of All Things Considered. Her editing work contributed to both an Edward R. Murrow Award and a Heywood Broun Award for NPR's coverage of the foreclosure crisis.

Before joining NPR, Geewax served as the national economics correspondent for Cox Newspapers' Washington bureau and had worked at its flagship paper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She started as a business reporter for the Akron Beacon Journal.
