• HLN anchor alum uses fame to speak out as a dedicated advocate for women

    Richelle CareyRichelle Carey, BA ’95, isn’t just a nationally known television personality — though she is that, after six years as an anchor for CNN and Headline News.

    The Emmy award-winning journalist is also a tireless advocate for women, particularly on issues like domestic violence. Carey serves on the boards of groups like Men Stopping Violence and the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta (where CNN is based), and Carey frequently uses her fame to bring attention to issues affecting women.

    Earlier this year, she launched a website and blog, richellecarey.com, to advance the conversations started as a result of stories like those she covers on television. Her posts have covered topics such as domestic violence, diversity in sports, and a story on two sisters, ages 7 and 5, who are fighting cancer together.

    Of course, she finds time and space to show her love for Baylor, too, whether that’s blog posts about Brittney Griner and the Lady Bears or tweets about BU’s academic, athletic and alumni successes. (You also might have spotted her in Baylor’s newest commercial.)

    Sic ’em, Richelle!
