In this paper, we study the properties of noetherian rings with uniform annihilators. It turns out that all these rings should be universally catenary and locally equidimensional. We will give a necessary and sufficient condition for these rings, which enable us to prove that if a ring R is the image of a Cohen-Macaulay ring of finite dimension, then R has a uniform annihilator of local cohomology. Moreover, we will give a positive answer to the conjecture [Hu, Conjecture 2.13] about the excellent rings with dimension no more than 5.
