Students, Nation Engage in WEKU VP Prebate

Students and faculty from Centre College today quizzed a panel of local, national and international journalists.  The panel, convened in the Old Centre Building by WEKU Radio, was a preview of this evening's vice presidential debate.   Participating journalists were Don Gonyea, NPR; Simon Wilson, BBC; Lesley Clark, McClatchy Newspapers; and Centre political scientist Benjamin Knoll.  They were hosted by WEKU's John Hingsbergen.

The program, broadcast live in Kentucky, was carried by public radio stations from Washington DC to Washington State.  Comments and questions were also accepted from a national audience via twitter.   It airs again at 8:00 pm Thursday on 88.9 WEKU.
