This is a past event.

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Trinity University's Distinguished Lecture Series presents Ted Koppel - A Brave New World: The Future of Journalism.

For more than 50 years, Ted Koppel has served as an eyewitness to history. Among other events, he has covered President John F. Kennedy’s funeral, Barry Goldwater’s presidential campaign, Martin Luther King Jr.’s civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, conflicts in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, and the presidency of Richard Nixon. Koppel was an anchor and managing editor of Nightline for 26 years, making him the longest serving news anchor in U.S. broadcast history. He left ABC in 2005 and worked with colleagues to produce 20 hours of documentaries for the Discovery Network, where he served as managing editor. Since that time, Koppel has worked as a contributing analyst for BBC America and as a special correspondent for Rock Center, the NBC News magazine program. In addition to his career in broadcasting, Koppel is also an accomplished author. His most recent book, a New York Times bestseller, Lights Out, evaluates potential ways for the U.S. to prepare for a cyber catastrophe. 

Tickets are not required and the lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, call 210-999-8406.
