ABC News correspondent Martha Raddatz will kick off the 11th season of the University of Denver’s Bridges to the Future lecture series, which aims to engage Coloradans in a debate about the nation’s history, responsibilities, values, dreams and hopes for the future. The theme for the 2012–13 series is “Impact of the 2012 Election.” Also on this year’s schedule is U.S. Sen. Olympia Snow (R-Maine), who is slated to speak on May 6.
In her Feb. 25 talk, Raddatz will discuss her experience covering conflict, from her work as a White House correspondent to field reporting in war-torn Iraq and Afghanistan. Recognized for her recent role as moderator of the 2012 vice presidential debate, Raddatz was a clear choice for this season of Bridges to the Future, says Cathy Grieve, executive director of Special Community Programs, which coordinates the series.
“I think the committee, as well as the University, should be very proud of the fact that we have two very strong women who are presenting these two specific Bridges to the Future lectures,” Grieve says.
Martha Raddatz presents “From War Zones to the White House: Covering Decades of Conflict and Policy” at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25, in Gates Concert Hall in the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, 2344 Iliff Ave., Denver. Admission is free but registration is required.
