Journalist Dan Malone joins Tarleton communications program

Tarleton State University welcomes Dan Malone, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist to the College of Liberal and Fine Arts this fall, as an instructor of journalism in the communications program. Malone will begin teaching courses during the upcoming semester, which begins Aug. 28.

Malone has maintained an extensive and successful career in journalism, working as a public affairs reporter, night rewrite and state capital correspondent for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram through 1985. He also worked in a range of responsibilities for the Dallas Morning News through 2002, which included staff writer, Fort Worth Bureau Chief, and state desk reporter.

Since then, he has been a staff writer for Fort Worth Weekly and an adjunct professor for the University of North Texas, Hearst Visiting Professional-in-Residence for the University of Texas at Austin School of Journalism, and Jurist for the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Writers Conference of the Southwest. In 1992, he and journalist Lorraine Adams were co-awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting.

Dr. Charlie Howard, associate professor in Tarleton’s Department of Fine Arts and Communications says, “Dan will be an outstanding addition to the communications program at Tarleton. He has unique blend of experience, teaching background and unparalleled credibility within journalism. Tarleton’s journalism program will take a quantum leap with the addition of Dan Malone.”

Malone’s responsibilities at Tarleton will include full-time teaching of courses within the journalism curriculum, including introduction to news writing. He will be in charge of implementing changes and making additions to the journalism curriculum and overall scope of Tarleton’s journalism program, as well as helping to seek out potential students.
