Political Journalist Mara Liasson To Speak At Shasta College

NPR political correspondent and Fox News panelist Mara Liasson will present at the Shasta College Theater on March 16, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. Ms. Liasson will draw on her decades-long, award-winning career to provide an engaging evaluation of the canvas of American politics and the 2020 election followed by a Q&A session and a meet and greet. The event is free and open to the public.

Ms. Liasson’s reports can be heard regularly on NPR’s award-winning newsmagazine “All Things Considered” and “Morning Edition,” where she provides extensive coverage of politics and policy from Washington, DC—focusing on the White House and Congress—and also reports on political trends beyond the Beltway. Ms. Liasson’s work can also be seen on Fox News Sunday, where she has been a frequent panelist since she joined Fox News in 1997.

Each election year, Liasson provides key coverage of the candidates and issues in both presidential and congressional races. Prior to her current assignments, Liasson was NPR’s White House correspondent for all eight years of the Clinton administration. She has won the White House Correspondent Association’s Merriman Smith Award for daily news coverage in 1994, 1995, and again in 1997.

This event is part of the Community Speaker Series, a joint effort by the Shasta College Foundation, The McConnell Foundation, and the Women’s Fund of the Shasta Regional Community Foundation to bring a diverse group of speakers who will inspire, excite and challenge the community with fresh ideas and perspectives on education, social issues, the arts, and our environment.
