Dan Hicks '84 Inducted into UA School of Journalism Hall of Fame
AZ Beta Alumnus Dan Hicks '84 was recently honored by the University of Arizona, being inducted into the School of Journalism Hall of Fame.
Dan is a veteran NBC golf and Olympics broadcaster who started his career at Tucson's KVOA-TV and CNN. Has called a dozen Olympics, including swimming and skiing, and covered the NFL, NBA and tennis.
Hicks told KVOA, “Well I was born and raised here, so this just brings me back full circle,” said Hicks. “Tucson is where I was born. It's where I got my start in the business at KVOA TV and the journalism department at the University of Arizona was absolutely critical to me being able to have a nice foundation and a solid base to do what I wanted to do and that’s to be a sports broadcaster.”
