Michael Limón is a veteran journalist/editor who has led and been part of award-winning teams at a wide range of top newspapers. Most recently, as business editor at The Salt Lake Tribune, the Money section under his supervision was honored with multiple General Excellence awards by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW). Previous to that, during more than a decade with the Gannett Co., in roles ranging from assistant managing editor to executive editor, he was twice named a Gannett Newsroom Supervisor of the Year and was honored by The Associated Press, among others.

Limón began his career as a reporter at The Wichita Eagle before serving in a variety of editing positions at The Dallas Morning News and The Sacramento Bee. He is a lifetime member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, a site-team evaluator for the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC), and serves on the Board of Visitors for the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Oklahoma, his alma mater (BA journalism). 

Limón and wife Robbin, who have two grown children, relocated to Chicago a year ago and live in the West Loop. He is an avid skier who enjoys live music of almost any genre and collects first-edition books. This will be his second year teaching at Loyola.
