Dwayne Bray, senior coordinating producer overseeing the ESPN Television Enterprise Reporting Unit, is the speaker for the University of South Carolina’s Baldwin Business and Financial Journalism Lecture on Tuesday, February 24.

Bray will discuss the groundbreaking work the award-winning Outside the Lines program has done to document brain injuries in the multi-billion-dollar business of football.  The lecture will take place at 7 p.m. in the Capstone Campus Room. It is free and open to the public. 

Bray directs the network's studio enterprise and investigative team of journalists who produce long-form pieces on issues facing athletes, coaches, teams and leagues. Previously, Bray served as ESPN's on-site news editor for events such as Monday Night Football, the NBA on ESPN and ABC, college football and basketball games and soccer.

The Baldwin Lecture Series is funded by the Baldwin Business and Financial Journalism Endowment, given by Kenneth W. Baldwin, Jr.  A 1949 graduate of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, Baldwin funded the endowment in 2009 to equip students with a depth of knowledge to investigate and report on the most significant and complex business and financial topics that affect consumers and tax payers.
