Keith L. Herndon, a visiting professor at the University of Georgia and a 2013 fellow of the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism’s seminar for journalism professors, has been named Journalism Teacher of the Year at Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Herndon is a visiting professor through at least May 2016 at Grady, where he teaches media management, media ethics, news writing and reporting. He also directs a media leadership program in partnership with the Poynter Institute.

Herndon attended the Reynolds Center’s Business Journalism Professors Seminar in January 2013. Created by Reynolds Center President Andrew Leckey in 2007, the annual four-day seminar has trained more than 100 professors in how to teach an undergraduate course in business journalism.

“Certainly, my ‘branding’ as a Reynolds Fellow added to the credibility of the courses and helped me attract faculty support and quality students,” Herndon said after hearing about the Teacher of the Year honor.

Herndon is not alone in being able to advance his teaching skills by adding business journalism topics.

“An evaluation of the seminars completed last year found that the majority of those attending returned to their campuses and started business journalism courses, which have enrolled 1,600 students,” said Linda Austin, Reynolds Center executive director.
