WNBC News Anchor Maurice DuBois at Brookhaven Lab to Give a Talk in Honor of Black History Month, February 21

UPTON, NY - Two-time Emmy award-winning WNBC news anchor Maurice DuBois will give a talk in honor of Black History Month at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory on Friday, February 21, from noon to 1 p.m., in Berkner Hall. The event is open to the public. All visitors to the Laboratory age 16 and over must bring a photo ID.

Dubois is co-anchor for WNBC's "Today in New York," and he regularly fills in as news anchor for Channel 4's various newscasts. He also co-hosts on WNBC's weekend "Today" show and MSNBC, and he has hosted numerous special programs on topics ranging from OpSail to the United Negro Fund telethon.

DuBois earned a B.S. in journalism from Northwestern University, and, during his college years, he wrote for Brookhaven Lab's employee newspaper, the Brookhaven Bulletin, when he served as an undergraduate intern in the Lab's Public Affairs Office during the summers of 1984 and 1985. He began his career in 1987 at KING-TV in Seattle as a desk assistant, before getting his first reporting assignment at the station. He also was an anchor/reporter at KCRA-TV in Sacramento and WFLD-TV in Chicago. He joined WNBC in 1997.
