D.C.-based PBS NewsHour anchor Geoff Bennett establishes scholarship at Morehouse College

by | Jan 25, 2023

According to Geoff Bennett, attending Morehouse College changed his life, reports TV Newser.

The newly appointed, D.C.-based PBS Newshour co-anchor made that point as he revealed to Ebony’s Savannah Taylor why he established a new scholarship program that benefits English and journalism majors at the Atlanta-based HBCU.

“I feel like a well-informed society is a prerequisite for a functioning democracy. That is why journalism is so important. It’s vital for news organizations to look like the communities they serve.”

He added, “We need more Black journalists. We need more Black men who are committed to reporting political news, hard news and who are in this work of being dedicated truth-tellers and having a fidelity to the facts. There needs to be more of us doing this work. Starting this scholarship for English majors and for journalism majors at Morehouse is my way of trying to pay it forward.”
