MVC Murrell Library to Host Danny Clinkscale
The Missouri Valley College Murrell Library will host Danny Clinkscale on Tuesday, February 19 at 7 p.m. for an author presentation and book signing in the Murrell Library Reading Room.
Danny Clinkscale, a longtime personality for Sportsradio 810 AM WHB, is one of Kansas City’s most notable and longstanding broadcast voices. He is also the author of “Leaving Cancer for the Circus” which details his battle with cancer and a solo journey through small Midwest towns that are not typically found in travel guides.
“I grew up listening to Danny because my grandmother would have AM sports on all the time,” said Jae Steinkuhler, murrell library events coordinator. “I’m really excited to have him at Murrell Library and am very pleased that we can bring such an inspiring person to the Marshall community.”
His reporting skills have been showcased at a number of the largest sports events in the world including Super Bowls, World Series, Final Fours and U.S. Opens. Though primarily focused on sports, he has often written and commented on film, music and more. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the books will go to Coaches vs. Cancer.
