Scripps Howard Visiting Professional
Drew Berry has a way of lighting up a place, wherever he goes. A professional broadcast journalist who served as vice president and general manager of Scripps' WMAR-TV in Baltimore, Mr. Berry also served several terms as a Foundation trustee.
Today he runs his own broadcast talent agency and is the Foundation's Visiting Professional at the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications at Hampton University, a school founded on his watch as a trustee of the Foundation. His extensive involvement was a labor of love that now extends to teaching and mentoring Hampton students.
His leadership and commitment is a beacon to all and now especially to aspiring young communicators who are benefiting from his talent and experience -- and his particular dedication to young people of color. He really connects to students, and in turn those students rave about how his willingness to share makes him the perfect role model.
