Award-winning journalist and NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson will host a live discussion on October 1 as part of the Delta College President’s Speaker Series.
The virtual event will take place from 7-8:30pm on Zoom, a video-conferencing platform. Liasson will give a presentation about her coverage of this year’s presidential election before answering questions. She will also spend time talking to a group of Delta students about voter-related topics.
Liasson’s reports can be regularly heard on NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered. She is covering her eighth presidential election this year, providing extensive coverage of the candidates and issues in both the presidential and congressional races. Her reporting can be heard on Delta College Public Radio – 90.1 FM.
Prior to her current assignment, Liasson was NPR’s White House correspondent for all eight years of the Clinton administration. She is a three-time recipient of the White House Correspondents’ Association’s Merriman Smith Award and a graduate of Brown University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in American history.
