LOS ANGELES, May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Judy D. Olian, chairman of the G. and R. Loeb Foundation Inc. and dean of UCLA Anderson School of Management, has announced the finalists of the 2018 Gerald Loeb Awards for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. She also announced the recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Lawrence Minard Editor Award.

The 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient is Joann S. Lublin, former management news editor at The Wall Street Journal. Lublin began her nearly 47-year career at the Journal, and worked in bureaus across the U.S., where her beats included labor issues, housing and urban affairs. She served as the Journal’s deputy bureau chief in London before transferring to New York, creating the “Managing Your Career” column and sharing a Pulitzer Prize. Her coverage of corporate governance, executive pay, management recruiting and succession appeared on the Journal’s front page and Business & Tech section. The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes an individual whose career exemplifies the consistent, superior insight and professional skills necessary to further the understanding of business, financial and economic issues.

John Hillkirk, senior enterprise editor at Kaiser Health News, will receive the 2018 Lawrence Minard Editor Award. Hillkirk was formerly a reporter and editor at USA Today. During his 33-year career, he led the newspaper’s Investigations team to numerous awards and nominations. The Minard Editor Award was named in memory of Lawrence “Laury” Minard, founding editor of Forbes Global and a former final judge for the Loeb Awards. This award honors excellence in business, financial and economic journalism editing, and recognizes an editor whose work does not often receive public recognition.

The 2018 Gerald Loeb Awards banquet and celebration will be held on Monday, June 25, 2018, at Capitale in New York City. Tyler Mathisen, co-anchor of CNBC’s Power Lunch, will be the host of this year’s show. Additional presenters from television news will be announced in coming weeks via @LoebAwards on Twitter. This event is attended by many of the country’s most influential journalists, editors, publishers, producers, and media personalities. The official invitation for the 2018 Gerald Loeb Awards – with ticket, table, sponsorship and advertising information – can be viewed at http://www.theloebawards.com.

Lublin and Hillkirk will receive their career achievement awards at the banquet and this year’s winners in the 12 competition categories, which represent the nation’s highest honors in business journalism, will also be announced.

The Gerald Loeb Awards were established in 1957 by the late Gerald Loeb, a founding partner of E.F. Hutton. Loeb created the awards to encourage and support reporting on business and finance that would inform and protect the private investor and the general public. Journalists and media outlets nationwide submit entries to compete for the Loeb Awards, the most prestigious honor in business journalism.

In 1973, Loeb appointed UCLA Anderson the steward of the G. and R. Loeb Foundation.  The Dean of UCLA Anderson chairs the award’s final judging committee of leading journalists, news executives and academics. The foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates primarily from sponsorship and private support.
