Featuring Dan Rather
Wednesday, October 4 | 7:00 PM
Lady Bird Johnson Auditorium
Liz Carpenter, who served in the White House as press secretary to Lady Bird Johnson, was a Distinguished Alumna of UT Austin. The Liz Carpenter Lectureship was established in 1984 by a group of her friends and is dedicated to bringing some of the world’s most interesting and engaging people to the UT campus.
This year’s speaker will be Dan Rather, President and CEO of News and Guts. With a famed and storied career that has spanned more than six decades, Dan Rather has earned his place as one of the world’s best-known journalists. He has interviewed every president since Eisenhower and, over that time, personally covered almost every important dateline in the United States and around the world.
Now, building upon that foundation, he is president and CEO of News and Guts, an independent production company he founded that specializes in high-quality non-fiction content across a range of traditional and digital distribution channels.
The Liz Carpenter Lectureship is free and open to the public, however seating is limited. Tickets are required. Each attendee must register individually for a ticket.
