David McRaney

David McRaney, a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi School of Mass Communication and Journalism, spoke to students on the Hattiesburg campus recently about his career in media and new book, “You are Now Less Dumb,” a sequel to his earlier book “You are not so Smart,” which received high praise from critics and enjoyed successful sales figures worldwide. The books are based on his popular website http://youarenotsosmart.com/ which McRaney describes as “a celebration of self-delusion.”

McRaney is a former editor of the university’s student newspaper, The Student Printz. He later was a reporter for the Hattiesburg American and is now web manager for WDAM-TV.  For more information about McRaney and his work, visit http://davidmcraney.com/.
