L.C. Chandler Memorial Endowment

Your generous donation to the L.C. Chandler Memorial Endowment will help provide support for journalism students pursuing their passion with the same love L.C. did.

L.C. had a way of lighting up any room with his infectious smile and charming personality. Whether it was on the basketball court, in the newsroom, or just lounging around at home, L.C. shared a special connection with people, and his genuine love and care for them was immediately felt. He served as a mentor to hundreds of KCOU staff members during his several years with KCOU.

With his motto of “It’s time to talk sports”, L.C. left KCOU, KOMU and the University of Missouri to work at WALB. He died while working there in April 2015.

While we all have our favorite memories of our time with L.C., this endowment will provide a tangible way to remember him, while also helping future journalism students in their pursuit of their goals. Your donation will allow students to learn and work to achieve their goals with the same attitude and determination L.C. did.

The endowment fund will provide:

  • Named studio space in the KCOU 88.1 FM space at the MU Student Center. “Studio LC”
  • Scholarship for an out-of-state broadcast journalism student who is involved with KCOU
  • Funds to maintain equipment and broadcasting opportunities for broadcast journalism students working with KCOU Sports broadcasts
