NPR legal affairs correspondent visiting Columbia


imageTomorrow Wednesday, March 12, award winning National Public Radio legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg will give a lecture titled “The Supreme Court And It’s Impact on You” on the Columbia College Campus.

Totenberg has covered the Supreme Court for almost 40 years on many NPR programs, like All Things Considered and Morning Edition.

NPR was awarded the Peabody Award for Totenberg’s coverage of a sexual harassment case that made the Senate Judiciary Committee re-open the case after it concluded.

Totenberg received many awards on her own as well. She received the Long Island University George Polk Award for excellence in journalism, the Sigma Delta Chi Award for investigative reporting, the Joan S. Barome Award for excellence in national affairs reporting, the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Silver Baton, and she has won every major award in journalism broadcasting, among many others.

“I will definitely be going [to the lecture],” Jim Meyer, foreign language division chair said. “I am hoping to get my Nina Toten’ Bag signed by her.”

The lecture will be on the Columbia College campus in the Launer Auditorium, 1001 Rogers St. at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow.
