Carolina Connection 

Carolina Connection is a student-produced radio news program that airs Saturday mornings on WCHL 97.9 in Chapel Hill. I joined Carolina Connection in the fall of 2014 as a reporter and have since worked on the show as an anchor and producer.


For the 2015 Hearst Radio Competition, I finished in the top 15. However, I am more proud to be known as "Ace Reporter" and "Most Valuable Player" by my peers.

Students and other activists interrupted yesterday’s UNC Board of Governors meeting to protest the hiring of Margaret Spellings as the new UNC System President.


December's protest was the latest of several on campus this semester, amid simmering racial tension between students and administrators.

But the university’s history shows that that tension is not new.

Several faculty and staff members within the African American Studies department were implicated in the Wainstein report.


Now some students worry their degrees in the reformed African, African American and Diaspora Studies will be tainted by the AFAM department’s place at the heart of the academic scandal.
