The Daily Illini

Annabeth Carlson
I'm a senior in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in English from near St. Louis (Go Cards!). Since my freshman year, The Daily Illini has been my home away from home, and I've held many positions such as copy editor, reporter, assistant features editor and night editor. I am so excited to be the new managing editor for online and help transition the DI into the digital age. When I'm not working on stories or obsessing over grammar and AP style, I love writing my fashion blog ( and frequenting every ice cream place on campus.
