Marc Edge is a Canadian journalist, author, and academic. He has taught at universities in five countries and is the author of seven books. Pacific Press (2001) was based on his doctoral thesis at Ohio University, which won the annual dissertation award of the American Journalism Historians Association. His 2007 sequel Asper Nation was called “a must read for anyone who aspires to active and informed Canadian citizenship” by the Globe and Mail and was shortlisted for the Gertrude Robinson Book Prize of the Canadian Communication Association. Greatly Exaggerated (2014) showed that newspapers in the U.S. and Canada were not losing money as widely believed. The News We Deserve (2016) was described by the Georgia Straight as “incendiary and subversive research” and was longlisted for the George Ryga Award given annually to a book by a B.C. author that shows outstanding social awareness. From 1974 to 1993, Marc was a reporter and copy editor for the Vancouver Province and the Calgary Herald. After taking early retirement at age 38, he 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 in the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism 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. He was named Roger Tatarian Endowed Faculty Scholar in Journalism at California State University, Fresno in 2014. He taught at University Canada West from 2015-17 and the University of Malta from 2017-2020. His teaching career ended with pandemic, and he semi-retired to Vancouver Island, where he is writing more than ever before as media columnist for Canadian Dimension, which has published since 1963 and does not take media bailout money
