Daryl Grandberry


    Daryl Grandberry is a Georgia Southern University senior who believes he is taking the necessary steps to become famous after graduating.
    He calls Lithonia, Ga., home but originally is from Los Angeles, Calif.
    While he says he is very happy at GSU, Grandberry admits that ultimately, it was not up to him to decide where he would attend college.
    “I came to Georgia Southern because my mom told me I needed to grow up,” Grandberry said, joking.  “I’m a mama’s boy, so she didn’t want me to go to Georgia State, and she wasn’t very supportive of Clark Atlanta and the surrounding HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities), either.”
    He says that he originally was looking forward to a career in sports but recently decided to use his multimedia communications degree in a different way.
    “I’ve always wanted to be a sports broadcaster, but recently, within the last year and a half, I have been considering becoming a news anchor or a correspondent,” he said.
    Grandberry says that he is looking forward to interning with CNN in the fall so that he can lay down the groundwork for his future in the media — and his dreams don’t stop there.
    “I want to be making six figures before I am 30 or even a little bit after I turn 30. I also would like to discover taking the journey to entrepreneurship. Ultimately, I want to make it on television, primetime television.”
