One of the most influential women in journalism will be speaking at Ohio University at the end of September. 

Kathleen Carroll, Senior Vice President and Executive Editor for the Associated Press, will speak at Baker Center Theater on Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m.

Representatives from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism expressed excitement for Carroll's visit, where she will receive the school's highest honor, the Carr Van Anda Award.

“We are delighted to honor Kathleen Carroll, one of journalism’s heavy hitters. She supervises more than 2,000 journalists around the world and is a superb role model for women in journalism especially,” said Aimee Edmondson, an assistant professor at Scripps.

The Carr Van Anda Award is named for the former managing editor of the New York Times, who studied at Ohio University beginning in 1880.

“Like Carr Van Anda, Kathleen Carroll is a superb manager. Journalists around the world want to work for Kathleen,” said Andy Alexander, a visiting professional at Scripps.

Carroll’s lecture is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.

Tom Hodson, WOUB director and general manager, will be interviewing Carroll in Studio B Tuesday, Oct. 1, as part of WOUB's Conversations from Studio B series.
