Syndicated radio hosts to discuss election issues at CBU

RIVERSIDE (Oct. 4, 2012) --The College of Arts and Sciences at California Baptist University will host Hugh Hewitt and Leslie Marshall, two nationally syndicated radio talk show hosts, for an election 2012 conversation Oct. 10.

Hewitt, Chapman University professor of law and conservative talk show host, will remotely broadcast the Hugh Hewitt show from CBU’s campus from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Innovator’s Auditorium of the Business Building.

“The show will broadcast live, with the idea that students, faculty, staff and people from the community can come and watch,” said Dr. Gayne Anacker, dean of the College of Arts and Science. “I expect Hugh will interview one or two campus leaders. During commercial breaks, Hugh gets up, walks around and meets members of the audience.”

That evening, Hewitt will join Marshall, a liberal radio talk show host, for a discussion titled “Election 2012 — Hewitt and Marshall on the Politics and Issues” at 8 p.m. in the Van Dyne Gym. The event is open to the public.

“We want to model for our students and the community the notion of people with very different view points simply and collegiately engaging important and profoundly different perspectives,” Anacker said.

Chris McHorney, chair of the Department of History and Government and professor of political science, will moderate the discussion.

CBU first welcomed Hewitt to CBU for a remote broadcast in 2006 for Constitution Day.
