Torp Theatre will be the site of a special Money, Politics, and Power edition of WNRP’s Where We Live on Wednesday night.
John Dankosky will host and serve as moderator for the live special that features guests Peter Overby, National Public Radio’s awarding-winning journalist, and Ned Lamont, former U.S. Senate candidate. The event will include a question and answer segment, allowing the audience to get involved in the discussion with Overby and Lamont.
The live event is sponsored by CCSU’s Robert C. Vance Endowed Chair in Journalism and Mass Communication. Dankosky was appointed to the chair last spring.
The topic spawns from the current political races in Connecticut, including the fact that Linda McMahon said she would spend $50 million to win a U.S. Senate seat. Democrat Ned Lamont reportedly outspent opponent Dan Malloy in his loss at the democratic primary race for governor.
The event is open to the public and free, with seating limited on a first-come, first-serve basis.
