The prestigious Loeb Awards were established in 1957 by the late Gerald Loeb to honor journalists who make significant contributions to the understanding of business, finance and the economy. He intended to encourage reporting on these subjects that would both inform and protect the private investor and the general public. Distinguished journalists nationwide participate in the competition, which is presented by the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
