Narrowing The Field-MSU Presidential Search Committee Meets Friday


The Murray State Presidential Search Committee meets Friday to narrow the list of candidates from 10 to a short list of finalists. The closed session discussions, which begin shortly after 10 a.m., will be in MSU’s Alexander Hall.  

The committee last met the weekend of January 11th and 12th for a first round of interviews with 10 candidates. The committee will narrow that list to no less than two and no more than four candidates to invite to campus in March.

MSU’s Board of Regents will likely pick the university’s next president at its March meeting, which is tentatively scheduled for the week of March 11.

Chad Lampe, a Poplar Bluff, Missouri native, was raised on radio. He credits his father, a broadcast engineer, for his technical knowledge, and his mother for the gift of gab. At ten years old he broke all bonds of the FCC and built his own one watt pirate radio station. His childhood afternoons were spent playing music and interviewing classmates for all his friends to hear. At fourteen he began working for the local radio stations, until he graduated high school. He earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology at Murray State, and a Masters Degree in Mass Communication. In November, 2011, Chad was named Station Manager in 2016.
