The Shasta College Community Speaker Series proudly hosts a talk by Fox News panelist and NPR political correspondent Mara Liasson via online webinar on September 10, 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. The event is free and open to the public. Tickets can be obtained by visiting mara-liasson.eventbrite.com.
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, society, the arts, and
our environment. Additional support is provided by JPR, NSPR, and KIXE.
