It Takes A Journalist like Jim Hoge

Empowering the next generation of news leaders in honor of the late James F. Hoge Jr.

In recognition of his enduring legacy, ICFJ is honored to carry forward Jim Hoge’s commitment to journalistic integrity. Jim’s passion for helping young journalists led ICFJ to establish The Jim Hoge Legacy Fund in 2022. Through the Jim Hoge Legacy Fund, Jim’s life and work will continue to have an impact on the journalists ICFJ supports to provide the trustworthy news that free and strong societies demand.

Throughout his exceptional career, James F. Hoge Jr. has embodied the best of journalism. He was a
venerated leader as editor of the Chicago Sun-Times and publisher of the New York Daily News. In
his 18 years as editor of Foreign Affairs, Jim demonstrated unmatched excellence in fact-based
journalism and offered deep analysis of pressing global issues.

“It is an honor to recognize Jim, one of the most influential editors of our time,” says Jason Wright, ICFJ Development Chair. The immediate-use Fund is supporting rising news leaders at home and abroad, helping the next generation of journalists produce high-quality news and advance their careers.

The Jim Hoge Legacy Fund is a pillar of our It Takes a Journalist campaign and its three
strategic initiatives – Serve, Innovate, and Thrive.

ICFJ is working hard to help our colleagues and their news organizations meet the obstacles ahead
and follow in the footsteps of pioneers like Jim Hoge.
