Meet Cory

Hi. My name is Cory Weinberg and I’m the editor in chief of The GW Hatchet, the independent student newspaper of The George Washington University.

In the summer of 2014, I’ll be the business reporting intern for the Star Tribune in Minneapolis.

I used to intern for The Chronicle of Higher Education, covering how money and federal policy affects colleges. I also traveled to Iceland in the summer of 2012 to write about everything from elves to the European Union for The Reykjavik Grapevine newsmagazine.

The Associated College Press named me a finalist for Four-Year College Reporter of the Year in 2013 for my reporting on finance, campus development and breaking news for The Hatchet. 

The New York TimesBusiness Insider and College Media Matters have profiled parts of my tenure as Hatchet editor in chief. 

I’m working toward my bachelor’s degree in economics and journalism from George Washington. And I’m  a big fan of facts, so I loved working as an editorial intern for Politifact, a Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking organization in D.C.

But I do other stuff besides journalism, too. I’m interested in politics, baseball, reading, Iceland, indie music and LGBT issues. I’m a rabid Boston Red Sox fan and a member of GW’s chapter of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity.

I’m also allergic to peanuts.
