Dailey stepping down as “Capitol Journal” host

Dailey has worked in news broadcasting in Alabama for the past 40 years.

APTV's Don Dailey hosts "Capitol Journal."

Don Dailey, the longtime host and executive director of Alabama Public Television’s “Capitol Journal,” which chronicles Alabama’s state legislature, announced on Tuesday that he’s stepping down. 

Dailey, who has been the “Capitol Journal” host since 2011, said in a release from APT that his final episode will be Dec. 11. APT also announced that Todd Stacy, publisher of Alabama Daily News and the former press secretary for Rep. Martha Roby, Gov. Bob Riley and Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard, will take over as host. 

“For the last decade, it has been a high point of my career to bring Alabamians important news from the Statehouse and the Capitol,” Dailey said in the APT release. “It has also been an honor and a privilege to interview leaders from all aspects of state government. I am so very thankful for the opportunities that have been afforded to me by Alabama Public Television and I look forward to the next chapter of my life.”

Dailey began his career in radio broadcasting while still in high school and worked for the next 30 years in radio around the state, primarily in Birmingham and Dothan, according to APT.
