Dr. Edwin E. Meek, a longtime employee of the University, entrepreneur, University benefactor and member of the Ole Miss Hall of Fame, created and developed hottytoddy.com. The Meek family arranged for it to be placed into a trust for the benefit of the then “Meek School of Journalism and New Media.” It fulfills Dr. Meek’s vision that hottytoddy.com would serve as an immersion laboratory for students of Journalism and Integrated Marketing Communications.

Content is produced by students, interns and a small staff. Hottytoddy.com is editorially independent from the School of Journalism and New Media in which it is housed.
