CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.,

Feb. 3, 2006 – Carol Daniel, news anchor for KMOX Radio, will present the Department of Communication’s Michael Davis Lecture Feb. 12 at Southeast Missouri State University.

The lecture is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the University Center Ballroom.  The event is free and open to the public and is part of the University’s Black History Month festivities.

The Michael Davis Lecture recognizes the contributions of African-Americans in the media.  The event also honors the late Michael Davis, a mass communications student at Southeast who died as a result of a hazing incident.

Daniel, a St. Louis based news anchor, is a 22-year, award-winning radio broadcast veteran who first came to St. Louis’ airwaves in 1995.  At KMOX radio, she serves as an anchor, reporter and talk show host.  Daniel is also an award-winning newspaper columnist for the St. Louis American.  In addition, she writes “Balancing Act”, a monthly glimpse into life as a working mother for SAVVYFAMILY magazine.  Previously, she has worked as a cable television host, a recruiter for the U.S. Census Bureau and a substitute teacher.

Prior to her work with KMOX, Daniel was employed by KZIM Radio in Cape Girardeau.

Through her work as a motivational speaker and emcee for dozens of fund-raising events, Daniel focuses on a central theme in her life: “To whom much is given, much is required.”  She encourages others to challenge themselves to be more and do more and to be caring, active members of their community.  Daniel says her top priority is to motivate her two young sons to recognize and appreciate those same values.

She volunteers her time and efforts with numerous organizations.  She is on boards of the United Way of Greater St. Louis and Lambert Airport USO.  She also supports the Cameron Chamber Youth Orchestra, Mentor St. Louis and Habitat for Humanity-St. Louis.  She and her husband are active members of New Life in Christ Interdenominational Church in O’Fallon, Ill.
