BOCA RATON — Jim Lehrer, the host of the PBS NewsHour and
author of the best-selling book Tension City: Inside the Presidential
Debates, from Kennedy-Nixon to Obama-McCain, will be the speaker
at Lynn University’s Dively Frontiers in Globalization Lecture Series
on Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 6:30 p.m., in the Keith C. and Elaine
Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center on Lynn’s campus.

Lehrer has been a reporter since 1959, and in 1983 he launched The
MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour with Robert MacNeil that became today’s
PBS NewsHour.

During his career, Lehrer has received numerous awards including
the 1999 National Humanities Medal, two Emmy Awards, the Fred
Friendly First Amendment Award and the George Foster Peabody
Broadcast Award, among others.

In addition to his award-winning work as a journalist, Lehrer has also
authored 20 best-selling novels, two memoirs and three plays. His
latest book, published this month, is Tension City, a book that pulls
back the curtain on more than 40 years of televised political debate
in America. The book is inspired by Lehrer’s long experience hosting
presidential debates.

In the last six presidential elections, Lehrer has served as a
moderator for 11 of these nationally televised events. In fact, in
1996, he was selected as sole moderator for all three debates. In an
unprecedented show of respect and confidence, in 2000, Lehrer was
selected as the sole moderator for the three presidential debates.
Tickets are $25 by calling 561-237-9000.
