CBS News journalist Martha Teichner will address Francis Marion University mass communications students and the staff of the Morning News and WBTW TV-13 on Thursday, Nov. 1 in the Drs. Bruce and Lee Nursing Building’s Thomason Auditorium.
Attendees will take part in a question and answer session from 2:30-3:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Teichner, who has been a journalist since 1977, has spent more than a dozen years as a foreign correspondent covering major international events. She has broadcast the fall of Communism in Central and Eastern Europe, the release of Nelson Mandela from prison, and the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
After serving as CBS’s first female overseas war correspondent from 1980 to 1994, Teichner joined CBS Sunday Morning, a production that premiered with Charles Kuralt in 1979 and now features host Charles Osgood. CBS Sunday Morning is considered one of television's premiere shows, highlighting the arts, history, music and film. The program is reminiscent of the earlier CBS style that features insightful, thought-provoking broadcasting with in-depth interviews.
Teichner is also the featured guest speaker for The Joe Stukes History Series at 6 p.m.in the Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation Library’s meeting room. It is free and open to the public.
Following the presentation at the library, there will be a VIP reception at the Cottage on the FMU campus. The event will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are limited and will cost $35 per person. All proceeds will go to Friends of the Florence County Library.
Seating is limited for each event. For additional information, call the Friends of the Florence County Library at (843) 413-7064 or (843) 413-7065.
These events are sponsored by the Friends of Florence County Library, the Morning News, WBTW and FMU.
