Lowell Lecture Series: Christopher Lydon on Election Issues


Iconoclastic media guru Christopher Lydon will discuss election issues Thursday, October 7, as part of the University’s Lowell Lecture Series.

Lydon has been an unconventional voice in the media for more than 30 years. Most recently he has been a pioneer in audio blogging and is working on a new fusion of broadcast and Internet technologies to provide a public conversation of current political issues. http://www.bopnotes.com/

Lydon began his media career as a State House and City Hall reporter for the Boston Globe. He covered presidential politics for the New York Times Washington bureau during the 1970s and hosted public television news at WGBH-Boston in the 1980s. A decade later he founded the Connection, an unconventional talk show that nourished the intellect instead of feeding on anger and frustration. The Connection was broadcast from WBUR in Boston to 75 stations across the country.

The public is invited to join Chris Lydon at 1 p.m. Thursday, October 7, at Suffolk University’s C. Walsh Theatre, 55 Temple St., Boston.
