Great speakers at TCU


Here’s a late-breaking opportunity to hear some great speakers in our neck of the woods. If you’re not on the production staff, it would be worth going to:

The Schieffer School of Journalism at Texas Christian University will hold its Seventh Annual Schieffer Symposium on the News at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6, in Ed Landreth Auditorium on campus. Bob Schieffer, CBS’ Face the Nation moderator, CBS News’ Chief Washington Correspondent and TCU alumnus, will again host this year’s Symposium.
