LOS ANGELES (May 16, 2019) -- Alfred E. Osborne, Jr., chairman of the G. and R. Loeb Foundation Inc. and interim dean of UCLA Anderson School of Management, has announced the finalists for the 2019 Gerald Loeb Awards for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. He also announced the recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Lawrence Minard Editor Award.

The Gerald Loeb Awards were established in 1957 by the late Gerald Loeb, a founding partner of E.F. Hutton. In 1973, Loeb appointed UCLA Anderson the steward of the G. and R. Loeb Foundation. The Gerald Loeb Awards were created to encourage and support reporting on business and finance that will inform and protect the private investor and the general public. The awards are considered the highest honor in business journalism in the United States.

The 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient is Martin Wolf, associate editor and chief economics commentator at the Financial Times, London. Wolf was educated at Oxford University. Before starting his journalism career in 1987 at the Financial Times, he was a senior economist at the World Bank and director of studies at the Trade Policy Research Centre, in London. He was awarded the CBE (Commander of the British Empire) in 2000 for services to financial journalism and is a member of the International Media Council of the World Economic Forum. The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes a journalist whose career exemplifies the consistent, superior insight and professional skills necessary to further the understanding of business, financial and economic issues.

Michael Miller, senior editor of features and WSJ Weekend at The Wall Street Journal, will receive the 2019 Lawrence Minard Editor Award. Before graduating from Harvard University, Miller joined The Wall Street Journal in 1983 as an intern in the New York bureau and the following year became a staff technology reporter in the San Francisco bureau. He returned to the Journal’s New York bureau in 1986, writing about technology and health care. He went on to become a news editor for the media and marketing group, served as Marketplace editor, and then helped lead the paper to eight Pulitzer Prizes as Page One editor. 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 2019 Gerald Loeb Awards banquet and celebration will be held on Thursday, June 27, 2019, at Capitale in New York City. Tyler Mathisen, co-anchor of CNBC’s Power Lunch, will be the host of this year’s show.

About Gerald Loeb
Gerald Martin Loeb was born in 1899 in San Francisco, California. He began his career in 1921, in the bond department of a securities firm. He moved to New York City in 1924 to help establish E.F. Hutton and eventually ascended to vice-chairman of the board. During Gerald Loeb's career, he was a favorite of business and financial journalists for his willingness to be interviewed and was described as "probably the most quoted man on Wall Street" (Forbes Magazine 1955). He was also an author of two investment strategy books, a guest columnist for Forbes Magazine and widely considered a Wall Street icon. In 1957, he established the G. and R.
