Randall E. King recently joined North Greenville University as associate dean and professor for the college’s school of communication. He brings more than 30 years of professional communication experience to the role.
King most recently served at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana, as the communication and theatre division chair, the university’s TV station director and as a professor of communication. He also worked as a communication instructor at Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, Massachusetts, graduate research assistant and adjunct instructor at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and chair and faculty member of the department of communication and theatre at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California.
“Dr. King brings a wealth of valuable experience to North Greenville,” said Web Drake, dean of the college of communication and fine arts. “His tenures at sister institutions Indiana Wesleyan and Point Loma Nazarene made him the perfect mission fit. He has both a broadcast and a pedagogical pedigree that make his hiring a home run for NGU.”
In addition to teaching, King worked as a reporter, anchor and producer at WPDE-TV, an ABC affiliate in the Florence/Myrtle Beach, market, starting in 1984. He later joined WYFF-TV, an NBC affiliate in Greenville, as a news producer. He also served as staff director with Travis Avenue Baptist in Fort Worth, Texas, and marketing and media ministry consultant with the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas.
King is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University, Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary and the University of Tennessee.
