Macon Morehouse joined Foogue in December 2014. As news director, she draws on more than 30 years of journalism experience, from covering Congress at Congressional Quarterly Weekly Report to an eight-year stint in daily newspapers — first at The Charlotte Observer and then at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, where she was part of the team covering the 1996 Olympic Games, to working in People magazine’s Washington, D.C. bureau, covering presidential campaigns, celebrity fly-ins, as well as medical breakthroughs as the magazine’s national medical correspondent. Prior to joining Foogue, she was senior editor at National Geographic Explorer, science-focused classroom magazines for elementary and middle school students. Her love of science news stories and drive to bring those stories to a broad, smart, curious audience brought her to Foogue.
