Tony Lamont, director of media for Clover Lane Media, LLC in Indianapolis and host of the Hoosier Millionaire television game show, will speak about his experience in a variety of media, connecting and communicating with audiences, and job opportunities in the field. The presentation will take place at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 26 in Kleymeyer Hall in USI’s Liberal Arts Center.
Lamont has more than 30 years of experience in the broadcast industry and holds the honor of being the only African American broadcaster in Indianapolis history to emcee events for two sitting presidents: Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Lamont’s career began as club DJ, later opening the door to radio where he served as a morning show host. Along with his other responsibilities, he also is the co-executive producer for Living by Design, a community talk show.
He is best known for serving first as announcer and later the host of the Hoosier Millionaire game show, where he was called “the world’s largest voice.” That voice will be heard once again with the upcoming 25th anniversary of the Hoosier Lottery and the return of the game show.
Free and open to the public, the event is sponsored by USI’s Communication Department Diversity Initiative.
