Marc Edge is an Associate Professor of Media and Communication at the University of Malta. He has now taught at universities in five countries. He was previously a Professor of Media and Communication at University Canada West in Vancouver. Prior to that he was Roger Tatarian Endowed Faculty Scholar in Journalism at California State University, Fresno. He is the author of five books, including Pacific Press (2001); Red Line, Blue Line, Bottom Line (2004); Asper Nation (2007); and Greatly Exaggerated (2014). His fifth book, The News We Deserve, was published in late 2016. From 1974 to 1993, Marc was a newspaper reporter and editor for the Vancouver Province and the Calgary Herald. After taking early retirement at age 38, Marc fulfilled a long-time dream by sailing to the South Pacific aboard his 40-foot ketch, Markenurh. He then studied for his doctorate and taught at Ohio University. From 2001-04, Marc was an Assistant Professor in the School of Communication and Information at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. He was an Associate Professor in the Department of Mass Communication at Sam Houston State University from 2007-2011 and Head of Journalism at the University of the South Pacific in Suva, Fiji for 18 months from 2011-2012 before drawing the ire of that country's military dictatorship.
