The winners of the 2018 Gerald Loeb Awards were recently announced at a ceremony and banquet at Capitale in New York City, with journalists from across the nation in attendance. The Gerald Loeb Awards are among the highest honors in journalism, recognizing the work of journalists whose contributions illuminate the world of business, finance and the economy for readers and viewers around the globe, according to a news release from UCLA Anderson School of Management.

Waterville’s David Brancaccio, along with Katie Long, Nicole Childers, Ben Tolliday, Daniel Ramirez, and Paulina Velasco — Marketplace, were the audio winner of “Robot-Proof Jobs.” Brancaccio began his radio career as a teenager on WTVL.

Judy D. Olian, dean of UCLA Anderson School of Management and chairman of the G. and R. Loeb Foundation, welcomed Loeb Awards honorees and their guests. Tyler Mathisen, co-anchor of CNBC’s Power Lunch, served as master of ceremonies. The ceremony also celebrated Gerald Loeb’s legacy with historical footage of the Wall Street icon.

The Gerald Loeb Awards include two special awards for career contributions: The Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented to Joann S. Lublin, former management news editor of the Wall Street Journal, and the Lawrence Minard Editor Award, which was awarded to Kaiser Health News’ senior enterprise editor, John Hillkirk.
