Like a trained police dog, an intrepid journalist is adept at sniffing out the truth, blowing whistles, and identifying the criminal suspect most likely to have a steak in his backpack. Immerse your senses in journalistic prowess with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get one ticket to “An Evening With Linda Wertheimer” on Thursday, June 16 at 8 p.m., presented by The WRVO Stations. The lecture will take place at Hendricks Chapel on the Syracuse University campus. All tickets are general admission, with doors opening at 7 p.m., and free parking is available in the garage on Irving Avenue.
For more than 30 years, the voice of accomplished journalist Linda Wertheimer has floated across NPR’s airwaves, delivering up-to-date information on national and global events. During her one-hour lecture, audience members will journey back in time with the senior national correspondent as she regales listeners with personal accounts of her time at NPR, beginning at the network’s inception and ending in the future. Wertheimer's train of thoughts will also make a stop at the 40th birthday of All Things Considered, NPR’s flagship news magazine. A Q&A session will follow the talk, giving inquisitive onlookers a chance to seek an expert’s opinion on the Watergate impeachment hearings, the Iran–Contra affair, and how to decode extraterrestrial messages from radio static. Patrons with disabilities should call to make arrangements upon purchasing this Groupon.
