NPR Editor Brenda Box Dies
Award-winning NPR Newscast Editor Brenda Michelle Box Johnson died Thursday morning at the age of 58 after an illness. Johnson came to NPR with an extensive resume in news and radio: since graduating with a journalism degree from Colorado State University, Johnson had worked as a Capitol Hill correspondent for USA Today Broadcasting/Gannett News Service, as an anchor for the UPI and NBC/Mutual Radio networks, and as a reporter for West Virginia Public Radio and WTOP.
Johnson’s family requests that by way of remembrance, contributions in her name can be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Details are not yet available regarding a memorial service.
