Chris Matthews and Presidential Speechwriters

December 8, 2008 — Chris Matthews

"How Would You Address America?," an event featuring US News & World Report opinion editor Robert Schlesinger, MSNBC talk show host Chris Matthews, Mary Kate Cary and J. Terry Edmonds who was the first African American speechwriter to serve a president, will take place at the National Constitution Center (NCC) on December 8th. The all-star line-up of presidential speechwriters will be captured for broadcast by DUTV and its student crew. The panel will discuss the ideas, themes and values President-Elect Barack Obama will explore in his Inaugural Address. This event is mad possible through the support of the Kal and Lucille Rudman Institute for Entertainment Industry Studies and is part of our ongoing collaboration with NCC which kicked off last year with our telecast of Tom Brokaw's BOOM! Voices of the Sixties.

We only have a few free tickets remaining for students who want to attend the event which we'll distribute on a first-come, first-serve basis. E-mail westphal@drexel.edu for a ticket or watch the event on DUTV in January. Drexel's 24-hour television station can be found on Comcast Cable Channels 54 or 62 and also on their Online Media Center.
