SOLD OUT! -- NPR Tour and Reception with White House Correspondent Scott Horsley A.B. ’88 (’87)

Tuesday, February 28th at 5:00pm – 8:00pm

Join us on a special behind the scenes tour of National Public Radio (NPR) with White House correspondent Scott Horsley. He has graciously made arrangements for us to hear live taping for All Things Considered.  Each show consists of the biggest stories of the day, thoughtful commentaries, insightful features on the quirky and the mainstream in arts and life, music and entertainment, all brought alive through sound. All Things Considered is the most listened-to, afternoon drive-time, news radio program in the country.

HCW will host a private reception with Scott Horsley following the tour. We will have the opportunity to hear his views about current developments in politics and journalism. He will be happy to entertain questions.  

During the reception and discussion, we will enjoy wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres.

The tour will start at 5:00, so please be prompt. If you are running a little late, come anyway. We may be able to take a second group and you will still be able to join Scott and other fellow alumni at the reception.

We will meet Scott at the NPR Piano Lounge before the tour and return there for the reception. Enter by the main entrance to NPR Headquarters at 1111 North Capitol St., NE and security will direct you.

Limited spaces available for the tour, so sign up now!

Members and their guests:  $60
