Wednesday, November 28, 2012, 7-8 PM
at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Columbus, 1125 College Avenue, Columbus 43209
Join Bill Cohen in conversation, with OSU Humanities Institute Associate Fred Andrle, for an in-depth discussion and for answers to questions you pose about the process of reporting on our state government and its elected officials
We’ll get the inside story of how public radio and television report on our Ohio government , from a veteran journalist who has covered state government issues for nearly 40 years. Bill Cohen has reported on hundreds of different public policy issues ...from tax hikes, budget crunches, and soaring college tuition to capital punishment, abortion, and gay marriage. Among the most high-profile developments he's covered: the 1993 Lucasville prison riot, the long-running legal battle over school funding, dozens of elections for governor and president, and the rise and fall of political legends such as Governor James Rhodes and House Speaker Vern Riffe.
A program of The Ohio State University Humanities Institute co-sponsored with the Jewish Community Center of Greater Columbus.
