New national leadership: Kym Fox

Kym Fox

Kym Fox joined SPJ while an undergrad at Arizona State University in the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism.  She has been president of the San Antonio Pro Chapter and is currently the co-adviser to the Texas State University student chapter.

Fox spent the first 20 something years of her career as a reporter and editor, first at the Mesa Tribune, a 40,000 daily in a suburb of Phoenix, and then 18 years at the San Antonio Express-News. She was the deputy metro editor when she left the Express-News to take to the classroom at Texas State.

Most of her career, she spent covering courts and legal affairs, thus her affinity for Freedom of Information projects.Over the years she has covered everything from high school sports to George H.W Bush signing NAFTA. She has interviewed the Queen of England and Michael Jackson, though not at the same time.

Along with her B.S. in journalism, she earned an M.A. in communications from the University of the Incarnate Word while an editor at the Express-News. At Texas State she is a senior lecturer and coordinator of the journalism sequence. She teaches a variety of writing classes as well as multimedia journalism.

Her take on the future of journalism: “Newspapers are NOT dying. They are evolving.”
