KMOX news anchor Carol Daniel to deliver the Michael Davis Lecture

Tuesday, February 7, 2006

KMOX radio news anchor Carol Daniel will deliver the 11th annual Michael Davis Lecture Sunday at Southeast Missouri State University.

The 7 p.m. lecture in the University Center Ballroom is free and open to the public. It is part of the school's Black History Month activities.

The lecture recognizes the contributions of blacks in the media. It also honors Davis, a mass communications student at Southeast who died in a fraternity hazing ritual a dozen years ago.

David died on Feb. 15, 1994, after enduring a weeklong hazing ritual of slaps, punches and body slams on the university campus.

Daniel worked for KZIM Radio in Cape Girardeau at the time. She covered the tragedy for the radio station.

She plans to discuss her memories of that event, said Dr. Stuart Towns, chairman of the university's communication department which is sponsoring the lecture.

Daniel, a St. Louis-based news anchor, is a 22-year, award-winning radio broadcast veteran. She has worked in St. Louis radio since 1995. At KMOX, she serves as an anchor, reporter and talk-show host.

She previously worked as a cable television host, a recruiter for the U.S. Census Bureau and a substitute teacher.

Through her work as a motivational speaker and emcee for dozens of fund-raising events, Daniel encourages people to be caring, active members of their communities.

She serves on the board of the United Way of Greater St. Louis.
