Distinguished Lecturer

Named one of the “Heavy Hundred” (The 100 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts In America) by industry bible Talkers Magazine, Karen Hunter has blazed a trail, bringing more action and less talk to the medium. On the Karen Hunter Show, broadcast weekly on SiriusXM, she not only has some of the most provocative interviews with some of the biggest movers and shakers in the world, she is also a change agent—challenging her listeners to participate in the success they want to see and be.

A former sports and news reporter with the New York Daily News for 16 years, Hunter served four of those years on the editorial board of paper, where she was a member of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize and Polk Award winning teams. She was also the paper’s first African-American female news columnist.

Karen is a New Jersey native and Drew University graduate.
