Chris Wallace will speak on the topic, “A View from Washington.”
“Wallace advised us that he could not come until after the election, so it’s perfect, he’ll be here… a week following (the) critical midterm election,” Dan Boulware said. “He is renowned, regarded as one of the leading journalists in our country today… He just received an award from his peers for his unbiased reporting and how he goes about it. I think most of us are familiar with him, he’s a familiar face and I think we’re fortunate to have him and we’re looking forward to it.”
Currently the host of “FOX News Sunday,” Wallace previously reported from the ABC News desk as a senior correspondent for “Primetime” and “20/20,” and as an anchor on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” in his long career. The author of the best-seller, “Character: Profiles in Presidential Courage,” Wallace has won every major broadcast news award, including three Emmys, the Peabody Award and the Dupont-Columbia Silver Baton Award. In 2016, Wallace earned praise from fellow journalists and political operatives on both sides of the aisle for his sterling performance moderating the final presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Wallace will speak at the convocation at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, in the Looney Complex Arena on the campus of Missouri Western. The Convocation is free and open to the public.
