Cazenovia Forum begins lecture series
Jim Angle, chief Washington correspondent for Fox News Channel, will inaugurate the Cazenovia Forum lecture series with a speech at the Catherine Cummings Theatre in Cazenovia at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9. The event is free of charge and open to the public, with a reception following.
A former member of the White House press corps who has covered four presidents, Angle will focus his remarks on the results of the recent Congressional elections and how they might affect U.S. policies and the political environment in Washington.
The event's sponsor, The Cazenovia Forum, is a nonpartisan organization recently founded by local residents to promote discussion and understanding of critical issues facing our nation and the world today. To this end, the Forum will bring nationally and internationally known experts to Cazenovia to speak on topics of current interest. The group plans to hold four lectures a year, with speakers and topics for future events to be announced soon. More information can be found on the organization's web site at cazenoviaforum.com.
As a member of the White House press corps, Jim Angle has covered the past four U.S. Presidents. Having joined the Fox News in 1996, he served until last year as its senior White House correspondent -- covering the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations -- as well as substitute host for "Special Report with Brit Hume." He previously was a political and economic correspondent at CNN and, before that, covered economic policy for ABC News. He is also a frequent guest host of "The Diane Rehm Show" on National Public Radio.
Before joining ABC News, Angle worked in public radio for 18 years. From 1990 to 1993, he anchored the popular national program "Marketplace," a daily half-hour program on money and business. Before that, he spent seven years as National Public Radio's senior White House correspondent, covering both the Reagan and G.H.W. Bush administrations.
The Catherine Cummings Theatre, which is a generous sponsor of the event, is located on Lincklaen Street, adjacent to the Lincklaen House hotel in the heart of Cazenovia.
